4 Goals for November

It turns out October was not that full of energy as I initially felt, so it's up to November to get things moving forward. Here are the goals I hope to achieve this month:

1. Consecrate time to myself
2. Find a new job
3. Make a plan for next year so that I know what needs to be done in preparation
4. Go to France for my birthday

So my November list is slightly shorter, but the goals are also somewhat more bulky.

Consecrate time to myself: I realized, that if I want to have more energy, I shouldn't simply not work during the weekends or 'relax', but seriously consacrate quality time to myself, when I do things I enjoy, no matter how impractical those things may be. Like solving a sudoku puzzle.

Find a new job: It's time to finish polishing that CV and go to the local unemployment office and take all the help and information they offer to find a new job quickly. Like always, I look for a job I enjoy, where I'm inspired and motivated and that finally grants me financial security, paying a salary matching my expertise.

Make a plan for next year: If you don't know what you want, no wonder you don't move forward. So it's time to get clear. It's time to define those vague ideas.

Go to France for my birthday: I write France, because I'm not sure if my friend will take me to Paris, or I'll go alone, but then only to Metz. Either trip will be great fun, so I really look forward to this.
