Three hours. In an average eight-hour workday, the average developer will get maybe three hours of actual work done. Between distractions, interruptions, overloaded schedules, and tight deadlines, it can feel like we'll never get anything done. In this talk, Jason Lengstorf shares his story of grinding out 70–90 hours a week, and the surprisingly simple changes he made to turbocharge his productivity, earn more money, and work an average of 37 hours a week in 2016 — while also rediscovering life outside of work.
