I wanted to have a small thread where (hopefully) the community can put their tips and tricks on how to stay motivated after a full day of work (in a programming industry or not).
I personally suffer from this quite a lot, especially as I've gotten older, the procrastination side of me or the mental block kicks in quite frequently.
Now I'm not saying if you have had a hard day at work and are mentally drained you should force yourself to work on personal stuff, don't do that! That's a fast track to burnout!
My tip to keep focused on personal projects is to try working in/with a community. You don't need to work on a group project but just being in a community that can help you, inspire you, show off too or even hold you accountable for watching Netflix for 5 hours straight instead of spending at least an hour programming.
Anyone else got other tips? please share, as I'd personally love some new tips and also think we'd all benefit from it.
