Do you work on the weekends?

I've always gotten a mixed review around working on weekends. Some prefer it to be a no work zone so they can start the work day week fresh but others like to mix it up. What do you do?

Hi Richard! As a side project entrepreneur, the weekends are necessary for building products. Still, I find it easier to get the momentum during regular workdays.

@eivindhaa Yup! I think this is the case for me too
I'm a Product + Content Marketer
I do work on weekends, sometimes. I try to avoid it as much as I can, but on a few occasions my work bucket gets so full on the weekdays, that a few of the tasks spill over the weekend.

I usually write articles and read books over the weekend. Most of the productive work happens during the weekdays.

@eugenehp When I wasn't working on anything, this was exactly what I was doing 😊

Do you even separate weekends from weekdays when building your own product?

@eugene_bochkov That's true! But not everyone on ProductHunt is working on their own product 😆

Try to avoid it, but if I need to I do. I see it as one of the responsibilities of having my own business.

I try to do the creative & enjoyable tasks for my side projects on the weekends and the "not-so-sexy-tasks" in the evenings of my workdays. That way I can still get a lot of energy on weekends and keep them as stress-free as possible.

@valaaarmorghulis This is a balanced model, also there are some not-so-sexy tasks which can't wait until the weekend so I like to utilize the business hours of the work week to the max. 👌

I work on weekends, sometimes because I love what I do and I don't have time on weekdays. I try to avoid it because I think that disconnecting is important too.

@mark_diego Yeah i think it's about finding that balance :)

Absolutely, In fact especially in Lockdown I kind of started hating weekends as communication with my contractors or clients would be completely off and thus making the project a lot slower but that said working few hours on weekend definitely doesn't hurt.

I work only on Saturdays, the reason is that it enables me to conclude all the work of the week and submit the report to my boss.

Almost always! I use my weekends to declutter and reflect.

I believe that mixing weekends with relaxation as well as completing some portion of work on the weekends is a sound choice.

yes but not on the issues going on during the weekend, on something different

I do sometimes, because I have a lot of tasks to do and I run out of time to complete all of them when working Monday through Friday.
