October Goals

Autumn in Ohio I stayed SO busy in September, as evidenced by my lack of blog posts. Here's the thing about blogging. I love it, I really do. As a journalism girl, I get to fulfill my love of writing on this little blog here. However, one thing I've learned while running this business is that I have to take care of my clients first (shooting, editing, e-mailing, meeting) and then myself (exercising, eating right, resting), and that doesn't always provide a lot of extra time for the other things that I reallllly want to accomplish (blogging, shooting for myself, staying super up-to-date with social media). Owning a small business is a whirlwind--a good one--and I'm always learning something new. I promise I'm going to be introducing some really awesome peopleΒ to this blog soon enough. For now, my reach-for-the-stars, I-wish-there-were-30-hours-in-a-day goals for October. It's my last super busy month of the year, and I'm going to try to keep up with everything. Even if I only get 24 hours a day.

October Goals

  • Finish Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less (ironic that I'm having a hard time finishing this book in the midst of my busy season?) and read Everything I Never Told You
  • Continue developing a realistic morning routine, especially as the days start to slow down
  • Finish decorating our kitchen nook
  • Start training for the Cincinnati Turkey Trot (yes, I have to train for a 10K!)
  • Go on a fall hike
  • Take one weekend day completely off to spend with Nathan
  • Host Nathan's family for a weekend
  • Edit all September work and stay caught up with October work through the end of the month
