Discussion on: Do you have any energy and time for your personal goals after a full day of work at your job?

I am assuming that for personal goals you mean career and/or side projects related goal.

For me, It's all about energy and doing different activities.

If I spend all day coding, then I have no energy left to spend in front of a computer (or TV or any device) so I prefer doing sports, hanging out with friends (other personal goals) read: taking care of my body and brain, build and preserve important relationships.

If I spend the day in meetings or communicating with people (planning etc.) then I have some emotional and intellectual energy left to work on a side project at home.

It's important to set goals in order to achieve them, but it's also important to diversify the day :)
