Change of life : what is the best fresh start ever ?

Hi guys, I'm about to quit my job (today is my last day at the office), to finish my degree in Computer Science. I'd like to take that opportunity to make a fresh start in my GTD system, my working habits, and my life in general. Here's my question : what is the single new habit you took that dramatically changed your way of doing things, in work and in life ? I'm not looking for a silver bullet here, just someting easy that gets me on the right track for that new route in life I'm taking. Thanks in advance,

Jean-Rémy (aka JR or just John for english-speakers friendly simplification) is a french web programer who lives (with his lovely british wife) and works in a tiny country called luxembourg. It's a lot better than it sounds. Really. As a man of faith, he often find himself involved great but VERY time-consuming church projects, involving webdesign/programming, photo taking, and music. He loves all of those activities, although his favourite thing might actually be watching Heroes, or any other good and sci-fi related show.

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
