Getting the working life balance right is essential for all developers which we know is even more important for indie devs. If you’re in control of your own life, income and time you have more control than most even dream for. You can, hypothetically, take as many days off as you want. However, as indie devs know all too well, what usually happens is that the working hours never stop. Sleep becomes a distant memory and upi are swallowed by the never ending loops and clauses in your code.
That is where innovation meets efficiency to create effectiveness. At Umz Games we care about the health, both mental and physical, of all developers and engineers that we work with and who work for us. That’s why our approach to business revolves around Interconnecting. We never shun new ideas, and we are always more than interested in getting involved in fun and exciting projects. Keeping up morale is just as important as keeping up efficiency. What we get is excellent results every time!
So our tip for indie devs setting up, whether in an office, rented room or at home, is to be happy! Though it might seem strange and unconventional, it is nonetheless helpful and accurate. Our progression and successes have never come through upgrading our office space or improving our machines. We could of course write a guide on how to set up your working space for best Feng Shui. We could give you mathematical angles for lighting, volume and space. We could advise many things but being happy on the inside is the best way to improve your working space and working life.
If you really want to get ahead, you’ll need to maximise the power of your creative mind while utilising your problem solving mind. Your situation is unique to you, and we don’t need to know the details. What we know is that when you improve your working space and working life balance, you improve the work you do.
Do what you can. The logical answer is usually the right one.
