I also have a personal life (yeah really!). I live in Enschede, a city in the
east of the Netherlands, I'm a father of a 5-year-old baby girl :girl:,
a 1-year-old big boy :baby:, and engaged to the love of my life :couple_with_heart:.

My life is a busy one. Being a family man, creating time for the people around
me, having a full-time job, create time for my hobby, and contributing to
open-source projects (like Home Assistant), is like juggling ten balls at the

stop. Are you in some sort of like-wise situation?
Years ago I decided to become more productive in my life and started working on
systems to achieve that goal. You'd probably had one (or more) of those
todo-lists right? Yeah... Thought so... so did I. They grow, become obsolete
and eventually forgotten.

I use a method called "GTD" (Getting Things Done) and developed my own habits
and disciplines in the past years. On my website, I share some of those habits
and (hard) learned lessons once a while. Happy productivity!
