The dark planning season

When autumn hits, I’m instantly in a better mood.

I don’t know why. I guess I just relate a little bit more to the dark season, the fog, the rain and leaves falling from the trees. Almost like in the movie ‘Sleepy Hollow’ where virtually all the scenery is in a dark, misty and sort of off-putting atmosphere.

Still, I like it.

It makes me happy.

Maybe because I know Christmas is approaching and that I’d (when I was a kid) get gifts. Or maybe because I’m simply tired of summer, the constant running around all the time, all the partying and so on.


What autumn brings with it, is time to plan for next year. That’s right. I usually spend the rain season inside, preparing for how to totally decimate next year. And why wouldn’t I? After all, proper planning is 90% of all the work. When you have a great plan, and the more concrete and precise it is, the less headaches you’re going to encounter.

It’s really just a matter of you being willing to execute on what you’ve planned to do so far.

Speaking of which,
