All those options which I recommend above do not need you to work during your working hour. You can do it after your office hour, work on them at night and also weekend or your off day. 

It is important that you practice time management and set your priority right. Set the time you need to stop work from your day work, so that you have ample time to work on your passive income generation activities. Without a plan, you will loose sight on your goal and achieve nothing. 

Do not rush yourselves to do too many things at once. Work on one task at a time, and gradually you will build up your momentum and create your intended outcome.
