    Hey David!

    When I was 8, I was bitten by a radioactive keyboard. It made me an outcast to society, but in my technocave, I thrived and vowed to have my revenge.

    Uh yeah that got offtrack.

    I have no secrets whatsoever. I do work fairly hard, but certainly not harder than a plumber or middle school teacher or garbage man. I set in a chair for 8-ish hours a day and read and type.

    I once heard Cameron Moll give a talk where he was asked about work-life balance. He said he doesn't have it. But he does have priorities. Certain things come first. I like that.

    It may be that with my situation in life. as a privileged middle class white dude with very few big life obligations, I can throw more hours at what looks like productivity.

      Thanks Chris! Nice to know there isn't some magical secret to it. Although being bitten by a radioactive keyboard would explain everything a lot better ;).

      P.S. I'm sure you hear this all the time, but thank you for creating CSS-Tricks & CodePen. I use them every working day without fail.
