I have been sick for 10 days and I am suddenly on a productivity and organisation kick. Help.
For 10 days now I have been sitting around, twiddling my thumbs and watching way too much YouTube.
Yesterday I was back in the void, watching whatever YouTube recommended me because I had exhausted content from my usual YouTubers long ago. I stumbled across a video titled ‘How I paid off $30 000 in 1.5 years (and travelled to Europe)‘ by muchelleb.
As a young, full time worker who is about to get married and fly the nest, this caught my eye. I’m good with my money and very good at saving, don’t get me wrong. But I was intrigued. So I dived in.
The video was a good overview of how to organise your finances, with ideas pulled from our sweet saviour, the Barefoot Investor. It was nothing I didn’t know already but enough to ignite something within me. What happened after that was very odd. After 9 days of rolling around feeling grumbly, sick and frustrated with life in general, I had a sudden urge to get up, do a huge clear out and get my life sorted.
That’s when I found her introduction video on her ‘30 day simplify your life challenge‘. This was basically introducing a 30 day challenge to reduce both physical and mental clutter in your life and reclaim control over your life and how you want to live it. Exactly what I needed.
So here I am and here our journey begins.
