Getting ready for Project Reboot

There’s a term frequently used when you get to a point where nothing seems to be working, or no forward progression seems to be happening, or when those involved just don’t seem to be happy.


In my case it’s recently occurred to me that I need to reboot things – not just this blog but my life in general.

So I’ve decided to create a project for it and I’m calling it Project Reboot. What I’ve been sketching out in my brain will make it’s way onto the page over the next couple of days and then come Monday, July 22, I’m going to start digging in and reboot things.

Here are some of the things that I’m going to be focusing on over the coming weeks (probably months).

This blog – I’ve had this site for quite a while and it’s changed, morphed, gone dormant, and seen high activity over that time but it’s never really been focused – that’s going to change.

Social Media – I’ve been involved with Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn over the years and have created a monster out of it. I’m going to define what I want to do with each of those four and then make the necessary changes to move in that direction.

Tools – we all have our favorite tools we like to use and I’m no different, but how many do we need? I’ve been evaluating tools WAY more than I should be and have decided it’s time to decide. Some of the choices may require me to make changes elsewhere but it’s time I drew a line in the sand (in sand so I can change it later if need be).

Offline – My offline world has been going through, and continues to go through, a HUGE number of changes. I need to get a handle on that, get better organized and start to do the things I’ve been putting off.

I’m sure I’m leaving things out but that’s the rough outline and let me say in advance to those that may not like what is about to come, you have my apologies but sometimes you just “gotta do what you gotta do” – it’s nothing personal.
