Hey Andy!

This is a great question.

One tip I hear often and apply myself is working on my side projects for just 30 minutes a day. If I can do more because I have the energy I will do it, but I go into it knowing that is not a requirement.

Another tip, burnout is a real thing in tech. We all need to be mindful of our time and health, so if your exhausted one day take a break. The world will not end.

Lastly, pick side projects that you are truly interested in launching/building. Nothing will make you feel more exhausted than coming home at the end of a work day and working on another thing you aren't very passionate about.


Great points, thanks for the response! 30 minutes a day sounds a lot more doable than "work on a side project after 8 hours of work."
