Life Hacks Are Lame. Just Live Smart.

I’m sorry, but when I hear the term “life hack” it makes me want to hit my head against the wall.  Has life become so difficult that we need to “hack” it to make it through the day?

Whatever happened to making smart choices or educated decisions as we navigate our lives?  When did we start ignoring wisdom and think that we can “hack” our way through problem-solving like we’re computers or robots?

But the thing that really bugs me about these so-called “life hacks” is that they offer a false sense of security.  Use this hack and … you’ve got it.  No worries. You’ve hacked it!

Sorry, that’s not how life or business work.  There isn’t a prescribed way to go about anything.  Every problem requires a unique solution.  And making mistakes often leads to big success.

Today we’ll be talking about how life hacks will rob both you and your business of actually making good decisions.

What Really Happened In My Business While I Was On Vacation?

If you’ve been following the podcast, you’ll remember in Episode 21: How Will My Team Manage Without Me?, that I recently went on a trip to Australia for almost 3 weeks. We promised a follow-up of what really happened–and there was a lot to talk about, so we recorded the conversation in today’s podcast.

While I was gone, my managers, Emily and Christina, had to manage the studios, create our August sales goals, keep the team motivated, and … hire a new employee. They did all this without me! How did they do it?

Since we already had a hiring process in place (learn more about it here), it wasn’t difficult for them to follow it and find success hiring someone. Creating systems for your business is really important and this scenario clearly demonstrates why.

If you went out of town on an epic vacation and needed to hire someone while you were one, could your team do it? Do you have a hiring process in place?
