I don't have enough time" is a cry that echoes across social media and online chat rooms. Work deadlines, family obligations, hobbies that don't involve computers -- they all are taking out chunks of the time we have available to us. But there is one immutable fact --we all have the same amount of time available, some of us just find different ways to use it.

In this session learn how long-time grumpy programmer Chris Hartjes organizes and makes decisions about how to spend his time. Business owner, involved work-from-home parent, conference speaker, podcaster, collectable card game enthusiast - Chris does this all and more without feeling super-stressed about it. Was he born with this super power? Not at all. The talk will cover how Chris plans his life, his preferred tools, and strategies for figuring out what to do and when to do it. It is possible to get a lot done and not become a workaholic in the process. Sit back, relax, and let a grumpy programmer show you how to maximize your time.

This presentation got really real with regard to mental health and workaholism. I thought that was great. I appreciated the blunt approach!

Not only theory of concepts and methodologies, but combination of experience and real applications. Excellent.

I will now go to any talk that Chris gives. Excellent small concepts that you can grasp right away and take home and try. 1 hour blocks, discipline, learning what your own work hour is are all great things to work on.

I really appreciated all your insights into time management. You opened my eyes to some very bad habits I have that are adding undue stress, that are 100% my fault. Which means it is 100% within my powers to change that. Many of the concepts you covered I am already workin' at implementing into my routine. Thank you!

Really enjoyed this talk and opened my eyes to a lot of things that are going on in my own work life at present that I had been ignoring. Has inspired me to make big changes, thanks Chris
