My feeds are constantly full of great life hacks.
And that’s just the first four of more than 28 million results for the search query “how to hack this life.”
As my two boys walk through their teenage years, I’ve been thinking about the loss of the rites of passage rituals that defined the jump from boyhood to manhood for so much of human history.
Good or bad, these tests offered boys the chance to pass through their worst fears, through struggle and pain and indecision alone and without aid.
Which, in and of itself, is an interesting concept.
You see, life as we know it today is actually a great hack.
