August Goals and To-Do List

Traditionally I don’t strictly lay out goals for the summer months. I have an idea of what I want to get done, but I don’t really stress it too much. The school year is a completely different story though. This month I decided to lay out everything I need to finish before school starts on August 31st. I even laid out my list into different categories so I can easily see how much needs to be done in the different aspects of my life. For a few items I added due dates if they were especially time sensitive and for the rest I wrote down an idea of what days/weeks I want to accomplish them on in my google docs version. A few of the items on the list might even give you an idea of some of the posts I will have coming up in the near future 😉
