re: How To Balance Personal and Professional Projects VIEW POST


So I have kept a few rules to maintain that balance.

  1. I only work on stuff I love in my after-work hours. So it's a hobby more than 'work'.

  2. I keep a pretty firm reasonable bed time.

  3. My husband & I have our weekly evenings divided between working solo on side projects, chores & R&R together. So we are getting a good balance.


That sounds like a great set of rules. Is the stuff you love ever related to your career or do you purposefullly draw a hard line in the sand?

Also, the concept of you and your husband have dedicated nights both together and and solo is brilliant. You guys sound a great team. :)



I write code both as a career & a hobby... but in the evenings I try to stick to fun, experimental, no-pressure & learning type projects, rather than client work. It's a nice change of pace.
