His & Hers: Goals for October 2016

Posted on October 6, 2016 by Lindsay

It’s time to reevaluate our September goals and set new plans for this month. Take a look at how we did and what we are looking forward to in the weeks to come.


LINDSAY’S GOALS

LAST MONTH:


SCHEDULE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATES:

While I did put together some schedules, I still failed to follow through with this. It’s unfortunate but other tasks got the better part of me last month.

FINISH OLD RECAP POSTS:

I kind of sort of did this? Basically I organized all the recap posts by photos but I didn’t write every bit of content out. I’m counting this as a “win” though because it’s really the bulk of the task. The time-consuming part is behind me.

FINALIZE MY CAPSULE WARDROBE:

I am getting pretty excited to finally post about this! My biggest issue last month was finding the time to photograph everything in a way that I wanted but I’ll get on it soon.


OCTOBER 2016:


FIGURE OUT A GOOD INSTAGRAM STRATEGY

I’ve been working hard on growing our Instagram over the past few months and I’m on tract with all of my goals. A while back I made a separate, personal Instagram account but I’m now debating on moving back to one. I want to get a few more opinions on it and think more about the Also Coffee Insta brand. Man, being a blogger sounds lame sometimes.

ORGANIZE MY PHOTO CHALLENGE

I just started a new 30 Day Photography Challenge and I’m learning so much but I’m behind on posting because I’m not sure how to structure it! I initially thought that posting once a week would be fine but I may have to rework that. I want this to be my main focus in October.

WRITE MORE

Like always, I have a bunch of posts brewing but no potions made. I want to write a least one of my “big” posts this month that I’ve been putting on the back burner for too long.

JASON’S GOALS

LAST MONTH:


MOUNTAIN BIKE EVERY DAY

Unfortunately illness and weather took this one away from me. 🙁

WRITE ONE POST A WEEK

Does it count that I thought about this real hard and had every intention to do this?

STAY ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Maybe not as much as I liked but I did post a lot on our recent trip to Louisville (which was technically at the end of August but I’ll count it.) I still could have done better for sure.


OCTOBER 2016:


PLAN/BOOK COPENHAGEN TRIP

I have been wanting to go back to Copenhagen since visiting last year with Lindsay to try out a more extended stay in the city. It made my short list of potential places to live and vetting that out in a less “vacation” like setting is pretty important to me. Also, I just love the place so I can’t wait to go back! I’ll be staying for a month so I need to lock down logistical stuff before prices rise.

PERFECT THE ENDO TURN ON MY MOUNTAIN BIKE

I have been really trying to get better at mountain biking lately since it has become my latest passion. A big part of getting better is making sure to increase your skill set, which in turn just makes you more comfortable on the bike. The next thing I would like to learn is the endo turn, a pretty rarely used skill except for switchbacks on the trail (but it looks cool!)

FINISH MY WEB APP SIDE PROJECT

Lindsay and I recently had a conversation about “passive income” with one of our friends. This got me thinking about a little spread sheet calculator that I had put together for calculating a bunch or housing costs and stuff. This seemed like it would be a pretty easy and fun side project to code up and release for people to use.


JOINT GOALS: OCTOBER 2016

LAST MONTH:


WRITE A TIPS + TUTORIAL POST

We did a few posts about camping with your dog which can be found here! (& more to come!)

WRAP UP TO-DO LIST LOOSE ENDS

Early in the month, we sorted through the loose ends. Besides a lot of personal crap we still have to work out, all of the blog stuff is in check.

HAVE A PERSONAL PHOTO SHOOT

We totally did this too! Go us! You can see some of the pics on our About page.

OCTOBER 2016:


SCHEDULE POST CONTENT FOR THE END OF THE YEAR

I’ve already made some serious headway here. I hope that I’ll have everything planned out and drafted before this month is out.

ORGANIZE TRIPS FOR 2016/2017

I think this is somewhat of a lofty goal but also kind of necessary. We have a big ass outline of everything but we need to book a few more tickets and get our butts into gear.

FIND A PLACE TO LIVE

We are in the weirdest housing limbo stage ever (and totally won’t bore you with the details) but we need to find a place to hang our hats before the month is out.


Do you write monthly goals?

What do you hope to accomplish next month?
