How effective would it be to cram on a farm?
Imagine a farmer who relaxes through the sowing season and the monsoon, only to try and cram in the last few days to harvest a bounty. A farm is a natural system, and is subject to certain rules that cannot be hacked. To obtain a good harvest, the price must be paid.
We live in an era of hacking. Starting with cramming on tests, we have been conditioned into hacking our way through lives by employing a variety of shortcuts.
Yet, like a farm, our lives are surrounded by natural systems that are hack-proof. Personal health, human relationships, character – all these cannot be pumped on steroids and built overnight. Trying to do so is counter-productive.
