Do you ever lie to yourself? I do it all the time.

When I was asked recently to write an essay about productivity, I discovered that one of the core things I do to stay productive and focused each day is... to lie to myself.

I lie to myself, tell myself stories that I know aren't true, to keep my fears and deepest anxieties at bay. It may not work for you, but that's okay—it doesn't need to.

Because it works for me. Here's my story.

Took this pic while hiking up Mt. Victoria during our final few hours in Wellington, New Zealand. Apologies in advance to whomever sits next to me on the plane, but it was worth it. 😅

We've treasured our 3 weeks here in New Zealand, touring all over the North and South Islands. My wife and I were married here 10 years ago and we renewed our vows at sunset on Piha Beach. ❤

Speaking at #Webstock and running a full-day workshop on core values and content design was like a dream come true. This event is truly a standout amongst standouts and I'm honored to be even a smalll part of it. I've never learned so much, laughed so hard, not been so inspired. 🚀

Today I had the honor of giving the opening talk on the final day of #Webstock.

Thank you so much to Team Webstock for all of their help and support, for giving me the opportunity to hold a full-day content design workshop earlier this week, and for bringing me to New Zealand.

My talk was about aliens, nuclear waste, and the one thing that ties us all together: our shared fight against ambiguity.

We solve our problems together—or not at all.
