Work, Life, Hobby. Maintaining a Balance - General Ramblings #9

Marty: "Wait a minute. Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?"
Doc: "The way I see it, if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

So what do you do when you're working a nine to five plus job, pressing social engagements, renovations on your home and  finding no time to hobby?

Good question, hey? 

To be honest I don't have a good answer or solution. What I do have are a few suggestions:

  1. #Tuttle time - This is the approach that Carl Tuttle  from the 11th Company takes. He gets up a few hours earlier in the morning and does some hobby 
  2. One hour hobby a night - as the name says, pull up a table whilst you're watching the idiot box. If you hide in your hobby lair, they even run a Skype/Twitch/YouTube/Hangouts/Facebook live-cast.  The Terrain Tutor, Kris Belleau and even Frontline Gaming run open Google Hangouts on YouTube.
  3. Weekend block out - Grab a few hours early morning or late night on a Saturday .
  4. Set up "hobby-time" with your gaming group. While you're waiting for your round, or if you've got a bye round, sit down and punch out a few base coats.  
  5. Build a time machine and go back in time - Well it is the 30th anniversary and their future of 2015 is upon us.
Anyways, what are your thoughts, strategies, angles or approaches to squeezing out a little more hobby every week?
