Another day has ended just like that and it feels like I have not done much for the day other than my daily full time job. Time really does feel short. 24 hours per day doesn't seem to be enough. Every hour will just fly by and at the time I noticed it, the sky is already dark and the bed is calling me. Which also means that what ever side projects I have will be postponed till the next day.

After doing some research, it is true that it will be hard to focus on your side projects after your full time job because your physical energy has drained almost completely. You will than go home, get dinner, shower, swipe through social media posts and then your eye will start to close.


What I am going to do starting tomorrow:

5:30 AM: Wakes up, get shower (to make sure I am awake 😆) and make breakfast. ☕️

6:30 AM: Open laptop and start hustling on side project.

8:30 AM: Start of work day.


I set 2 hours of side project hustling to make sure that progress is growing. Hopefully this could work for me so all of you readers could also hoop in this daily routine.

    @wernminlim it's a great routine! When I started working on justinien.co with some friends I was also hustling early in the morning before my work day to make sure I could get things done! Working again after a full work day is not only hard, but it's a sure way to burn out as well.

      @wernminlim @basilesamel I am starting to feel the burn out now at 2.20pm. 8hours has passed since I started this morning around 6.30 ?

      And it is only afternoon right now ?

      Not to complain much, I've completed a lot of stuff too ??

    I'm thinking about doing the same, but starting At 5am because I need one hour to get to my office :x

    Do you work on your side project again after 5pm?

      @thiagocarvalho Before I do work on my side project after 8PM, as in after work + dinner + some errands. But it seems hard to focus by that time. Probably because energy drained during the day ?.

      Today, this 5.30AM failed ? Woke up at 6.30 instead.
