Let’s just forget about October, ok? And the whole writing for 31 days thing? Yeah, that was crazy. I commend everyone who was able to write for 31 straight days, and am reminding everyone else that sometimes we make too lofty of goals for ourselves.
So, with that in mind, I’m bringing you my November goals.
1. Eat a protein rich breakfast every morning. I really WANT to say that I am charging forth into the Whole 30 plan for November. But I know that’s not realistic. What IS attainable, though – is to eat peanut butter toast or egg scrambles first thing. I find that the mornings I do this, I stay full for longer and tend to eat healthier throughout the day since it started off right.
2. Hide my phone from 7-10pm. I really WANT to go off the grid and hide from the Internet or do a Social Media fast, but it’s kinda my job. And therefore not realistic. Plus, I’m a total Internet girl. I love the Internet. What I don’t love is how much time I’ve wasted on the Internet this month. I’ve literally sat on my couch after the kids have gone to bed and scrolled Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and ThredUP for HOURS on end. It makes me sick thinking about it. So, my goal for November is to not be on my phone AT ALL from the hours of 7-10 pm. This means I’ll actually have to fold laundry, read a book, or write a blog post.
3. Finishing our wholesale pricing. We get lots of requests every day from boutiques who want to carry BLB products. So, I’m currently going through our cost sheets on each bag to see if we can afford to do the 50% cut they want and how much volume we would need to sell in order to make that worth our time.
4. Read two books. I had actually written “Read THREE books”, but I’m really trying to set reasonable goals for myself, so two is still very lofty. I rarely finish one book a month (see #2 for the reason of why). But I desperately love to read and want to make time for it. Not being on my phone every night should help me finish this goal. I think I want to read one business, and one fiction or “self help/parenting” book. I’ll report back in December which ones I picked and what I thought of them.
Inspired by Hayley to do this. Love goal setting with grace.
