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

In a phased cycle. I currently work on-premise for a client 38.5h/wk plus 2h of commute each day. After that I usually spend some time with my lovely fiancée and then have dinner with the parents.

Then from 8pm-12am I spend my time doing various things in a rotation:

During November and December however I did absolutely nothing, so this schedule is still very new to me. It seems to work quite well, though, because after a month of keeping it up I still feel fresh when I go to work after work.

Also so far my effort in all of these areas has proven quite valuable in terms of growing a followership and getting my name out there. Which is good for when this contract ends. And I guess this is where I pull the energy. A constant cycle of fresh things followed by validation. :)
