Time For A Reboot

Right, laptop off and Moleskin out, tonight is a night of reflection and planning. My new lifestyle needs a reboot, I need to get back on track and make sure I'm even more motivated and heading for what I truly want.
Why A Reboot?
Well, first of you might be thinking that it's a bit counter productive to plan a night reflecting and planning and spend it blogging this... but I find that declaring my intentions in my blog (even though no one reads it) is really beneficial.
It helps me focus. When I need to put into words what I am reflecting on and what I'm planning and why, it helps me to cement those ideas and aims and massively helps when it comes to the planning stage.
So, why am I rebooting? Well, last year in October I changed my life around a bit. I started saving heavily for a camper van. I improved my diet, was eating well and losing weight and I was very motivated in terms of extra-curricular work.
I also quit caffeine, stopped biting my nails, started reading fiction before bed, started getting early nights and I got up at 6:30 every morning to plough through some work before my full time job so that I focused my energy on my own projects and had evenings free.
Some of that has slipped over the year. Sadly healthy eating didn't last. My savings account got emptied when I realised I wouldn't be able to buy a camper van before I moved back to Bristol so I had to get a car instead as I need transport in Bristol. The 6:30 starts have remained but I was getting up early five days a week, now it's one or two days a week.
I am still reading every night before bed but the early nights have gone out of the window.
However, I still don't bite my nails and I'm still off of caffeine (apart from the treat coffees as was the deal originally).
So, I need to remember why I was doing all of this in the first place, realign and get committed and motivated.
Tonight I want to write down those changes I made to my life to reenforce them and clarify them.
So, I'll ignore the individual process and changes for now (like get up at 6:30am) and will instead list my goals.
I want to:-
- Get healthy
- Save enough money to buy a camper van
- Work in an environment I enjoy
- Maximise the potential of my YouTube channel and websites
- Eliminate unnecessary work life clutter, avoid working for work's sake
- Improve my online personal brand and monetise it
- Make the most of being near friends and family
- Get a dog
I'm going to go away now and have think and will get back to you tonight or tomorrow with my revised life plan.
