I'm running out of stuff to try. I had in mind a bunch of things to test at the beginning of Hacked Man, but I've sort of done those already. Time to think up something.
Why do I need new stuff?
Firstly, I can't have tried all the interesting and new things out there. There's bound to be lots of effective and mind-blowing mind hacks out there and healthy habits that could add five years to my life.
But honestly, I want new stuff because new stuff is interesting and I tend to be pretty bad at maintenance mode. Real work is boring. Planning, testing and learning something new is exciting.
So I guess my first thing to try would be trying to find something to help me stick with stuff that's past planning and testing phase. (Another unplanned realization through writing btw. This thing works.)
Sticking with things
My next bigger goal is therefore trying to find some tools and help for making maintenance mode easier. There's bound to be some self help around for maintaining routines and finding new and fresh angles on stuff you already sort of got down. Whole Hacked Man might actually be exactly at the point where I usually get bored about things, so this is a pretty big deal, actually.
Updating Beeminder use
I also suddenly completed about seven Beeminder goals. I've tried Beeminder in one month bursts and now another burst completed. I think I will drop a bunch of goals that sort of happen automatically or which I'm not that excited about and keep a smaller number of more important or harder goals in place. Change around a bit how I'm using Beeminder and cut some updating overhead and amount of notifications.
Still in love with the service by the way. For example, I've managed to take my vitamins for over a month and missed just about one day. This is better than I've ever ever managed. I still nearly forget taking them every day, so keeping that Beeminder goal is a good idea in the future too.
