How do you have the time?!

I told you about making the video in my last blog.. But where to find the time. Of course I’ve had time, but working full time and with all the side stuff like errands, family, friends and working out I can’t find the motivation, energy and time at the same time. So how to cover this…

The problem: Time and Motivation

I don’t seem to be able to find the time and motivation at the right time. I have motivation at work, on my bike home or while thinking about the future, but when I am home this dissappears. How to find the time and motivation at the same time…

The Solution

What if I try to tackle my personal goals in the morning, before work starts, before my energy levels deplete and before I have all the distractions turn on. So, let’s find out how to do this.

  • Get to bed early: Waking up early means I lose some sleep. Or I should go te bed earlier. Most of the time I go to bed around 22:00 to 23:00. If I manage to get this to 22:00 and sleep at 22:30, at the latest..
  • Get up: I now wake up at 6:30/6:45 but most of the time just before 7:00.. So if I manage to get up at 6:00, shower and get ready I would have almost een hour of free time before work. But I need to use it wisely.
  • Get started asap: To get started as soon as I wake up is impossible because I first need to get ready. Like shower, eat and make lunch. Therefore I will be able to start around 6:30/6:45 and work til I have to leave for work which is around 7:35.
  • Get ready: But to make my work easier, let’s make a set up the night before. So, coffee in the coffee maker, laptop on the work desk and make get out of bed, by placing my alarm far from the bed.

With those measurements in place I just have to make it right?

Present over perfect!

While I watch a lot of YouTube explainer videos myself I come across the most perfect videos. Like Johnny Harris, Half As Interesting, Wendover Productions, TLDR, City Beautiful and many more. So, my expectations of myself are very high, because those are my inspiration. This causes myself to get a perfection paralysis…

But this week I stumbled on a channel with 4 years of experience, 100+ videos, more than 150.000 subscribers and more than 100.000 views on a 2 day old video. And the information was great but the production quality was just okay and far below the level I try to reach… So maybe I don’t have to be so hard on myself and just start instead of achieve perfection, because see where I can go and improve from there.

Well thanks for reading, hopefully you can watch something I made very soon!

Have a good one!
