November goals (& October 2015 AnchoredScraps Recap)

Welcome to the month of November at with looking at November goals.

It is hard to believe it is already here!

November goals

Today’s blog post is short and sweet as we anticipate a very fast-paced month – have you already planned out the month?  How did you like having that ‘extra hour’ today with Daylight Savings Time ending overnight?  Did you find yourself thinking it was later in the day than it was?  You will want to go ahead and mark any events including birthdays, anniversaries, trips, and any company coming to your home –  onto your calendar now.

Now is the time to do a sweep through of any greeting cards to send out via U.S. Mail and/or e-greeting cards to be scheduled – and while online be sure to make them repeatable events so they are already scheduled for next year too!  If you are needing to pick up any stamps those can be done online or in person.   Perhaps you want to have all Christmas packages mailed prior to Thanksgiving – if so mark it on your calendar now.

Veterans’ Day is November 11th (on a Wednesday) this month.

The countdown is finally here – Thanksgiving is 25 days away – may it be a fun family-filled month.Scrum_machine_and_goal_posts

“Time can be an ally or an enemy.  What it becomes depends entirely upon you, your goals, and your determination to use every available minute.”
– Zig Ziglar

“If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.”
– Les Brown

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”
– Napoleon Hill
