Hacking Rhetoric

Lifehack Results

After almost a week of trying to become happier through lifehacks, here’s what I have to report.  Firstly, trying to remember all ten steps to improve one’s happiness is a really difficult thing to do, especially if you don’t have a list of them on you at all times.  I found that I continually forgot to follow one or more of the ‘hacks’ on the pursuit of happiness.  The 10 things the author suggested to cut back on (to increase one’s happiness) were: blaming, impressing, clinging, interrupting, whining, controlling, criticizing, preaching, dwelling, and fearing.  I would say that I already don’t do most of these on a regular basis so that could’ve potentially affected my experiment.  Overall, I found that trying to keep up with each of these goals was more challenging and demanding than the actual benefit I would receive from following them.  I didn’t become noticeably happier, but maybe it’s because this lifehack requires an extended period of use to wreak the benefits.
