Where do conference speakers find time to deliver such amazing talks? How did my coworker manage to publish that NPM module with over 13,000 downloads while we’re on this death march project? Who has time to run a meetup group and spend time with their family?

We suffer from severe “rockstaritis” in the developer community. Many of us look at these rockstar developers/speakers/thought-leaders we see on Twitter and on podcasts and think the kind of work they deliver is intangible, and that we simply don’t have the expertise or hours in a day to achieve all we’d like to.
