If you could give one piece of advice to every single person in the world, it would be?

What is your happiness hack?
Ignoring trends.

Whats your biggest struggle, and what do you do to work on it?
Work / life integration. I love my work, which makes me very lucky. I can also get lost in it. The idea of work/life balance is dated. Our phones and other devices have made it so most of us never completely leave work. Comfortably and naturally integrating work and play are seemingly the only option. Spending time with my wife and our dog keeps me connected to what is important.
