I try and work on my side projects as much as I can, but have found that often it's hard to find the right balance to maintain momentum, especially while having a day job.
I've tried working evenings and weekends. Ultimately that just leads to fast burnout where I need to take a break, often not touching any of my projects for weeks at a time.
I've also tried working weekends, but that results in not resting at all and feeling absolutely wiped come Monday.
It's difficult to find the capacity to sit down and do more work after clocking off the day job.
When do other people work on projects? Does anyone have any tips for striking a balance to stay productive and sane?
