More time on my hands? What should I do?

Hi fellow savages.


Since a year I have a lot more time on my hands. My earnings are capped and I do not really influence them that much at this point. Bit of a strange position being compensated this way in sales.


So since I can just go with the flow and WFH everyday. What can i do to use the extra time productive?


Things I already do:

  • Workout during lunch
  • Do house chores during the day
  • Cook diner during the day
  • Walk my dog

Starting a sidehustle in Belgium is horrible for your taxes.ย 

What kind of sidehustles were you thinking of?

Ah man, didnโ€™t know that. I started one about 6 months ago where Iโ€™m essentially brokering waste management deals with other waste management companies and sometimes individuals. Itโ€™s a lot to really explain in a comment but it has required maybe 5 hours a week (just being on the phone selling, negotiating, scheduling and doing admin stuff) and it is doing pretty well.

But working out can't be a hobby. I was thinking more like gardening, caligraphy, etc

Do you enjoy coffee? Visit cafes and chronicle your experiences. Pick up a new hobby and enjoy the art of home brewing your own coffee and/or espresso!

I do enjoy my coffee. I have a fully automatic coffee machine that was basically the only thing I brought with me when i worked in London for a few months.ย 

Oh yeah I also brought my GF, Haha.

I do not really know anything when it comes to roasts, origin of beans etc. I would love to learn more about it.

Any tips how to get started? Good resources?
