Improving Side Project Preferences

  • Paid vs Unpaid. Are you doing it for enjoyment/fulfillment or to make money?
  • Profession vs Hobby. Are you working within your professional industry or operating outside the scope of your 9–5 work?
  • Independent vs Collaborative. Is the style of work done mostly alone or does it require working with others?
  • Continuous vs Project. Is the commitment ongoing or is there a clear start and end date with finite deliverables?
  • Asynchronous vs Synchronous. Can the work be done without coordinating schedules or does it require real-time communication with stakeholders?
  • Strategy vs Execution. Is your contribution high-level strategy or hands-on production?
