Here is what I'd like to accomplish before the Holiday season (which starts in December for me, since we don't have Thanksgiving here in Italy).
1. Set up a solid editorial calendar
I decided to slow down for the whole month of August with my blog, because I felt a bit burned out and the unusual heat really affected me this year, vitamin supplements were my best friends during the past few months. But I want to be more productive with the cold weather, writing value contents on my blog.
2. Quality over quantity
As I wrote above, I really want to write quality contents, so I decided to step back to just two posts per week, instead of three, and publishing my Happy Monday column in a different format.
3. Stay organized
I started 2015 with a daily planner by Moleskine, I loved the design and mine was a limited edition dedicated to Minnie, but the daily view wasn't for me at all, I prefer to see my week at a glance to actually see what are my tasks. So I started downloading printables, inserts and also trying to go digital, because I didn't want to purchase another planner and wasting my Moleskine, but it didn't work at all. I hope that the colorful academic agenda by A Beautiful Mess I received last month will help me staying on track of my tasks and appointments.
4. Maintain a social media strategy
As much as I love social media, I don't like to be extremely personal there (aside from Instagram), so I like to schedule my tweets in advance and set up 5/10 mins a day to share stuff on Pinterest. I've been pretty good about that during the last few months, but I've been a bit lazy lately.
Starting University again means also a good amount of stress, so I want to be sure to not lose my mind like I'm used to and start meditating again, because it helped me a lot in the past.
Here they are, my five pretty goals for Fall! I didn't include the fun stuff like marathoning Harry Potter, Hocus Pocus and The Hobbit or eating as many pumpkin meals as I can, but, you know, there is always Instagram for that :)
Do you have any Autumn goals? I'd love to hear from you, feel free to leave a comment below!
