I have a full-time job, but occasionally i will take on a project outside of work. Just curious if anyone else does the same and what kind of time you are dedicating to it.
- 45 hrs/week @ work (2 days from home)
- 10-20 hrs/week @ side projects
- 6-10 hrs/week @ gym
…I take days off to clean my house, relax at the beach or run errands, but generally speaking, the above takes all my time.
This looks like an awesome life plan. Thanks for the share!
You need to be disciplined. I tried to commit to 10 hours a week and that was tough, I'd say 5-10 worked better since I could do an hour or two at night and in the morning on weekdays, otherwise it just became overwhelming. Until I get my hourly rate up enough to make it a full time thing, I don't think you're going to find putting in that much extra time will work out well for you in terms of sleep/sanity.
Quite a bit. I have a Fulltime job and a more than fulltime freelance gig going myself. It's brutal sometimes but I consider myself to have 2 full time jobs.
I can't complain too much though. I made it happen :)
How many hours would you say you commit to?
It's better than the alternative!
I am trying to set a limit for myself. It has probably been around 5-8 hours a week, but I want to be able to commit to that and still have a life. Having a wife and kid makes it incredibly difficult though. Nights and mornings are the best times for me. Weekends on the rare occasion to get caught up.
