"There is nothing magical about the flip of a calendar," says Jason Soroski, "but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas." Making New Year's Resolutions presents us with an opportunity to reboot our lives, and reset our habits. I typically keep less than half the resolutions I make every year, [...]

Annual Review 2018

By | 2019-01-06T14:27:16+13:00 December 31st, 2018|Introspection|

2018 was a big year. I've worked harder this year than I ever have in my life (and that's really saying something).

Summer Christmas

By | 2018-12-27T09:21:56+13:00 December 14th, 2018|Family, Roundups|

Having a summer Christmas in New Zealand is odd. Like the whole world is turned upside-down. Which, I suppose in the Southern Hemisphere, it is. The sun rises before 6 am, and sets after 10. The longest day of the year is next week. It's disorienting to have our traditional Winter holiday as the beginning [...]

As it turns out, working 60 hours a week for 9 months is not good for the body. I developed some startling symptoms recently, right about the same time I resigned from my day job, and decided to go back to running my business full time. To cure my symptoms, I used the natural healing [...]

Gutenberg is Coming to WordPress

The new Gutenberg editor is the future of WordPress. I've decided to take Gutenberg for a spin in advance of the core update. Since WordPress website design is the foundation of my business, I'm always testing the latest tools and upgrades in advance, for two reasons: a) I want to make sure it doesn't break [...]

One year in New Zealand

I've been extraordinarily busy over the past year. Today is the one-year anniversary of putting in our 30-day notice on the house we were renting in Portland.

These are the habits that will support the achievement of my goals for this year.
