I have been an advocate of vision boards for many years now. It has been tried, tested and proven to work. Just to reiterate, a vision board is essentially a physical (or digital) representation of the goals you wish to achieve. Vision boarding involves collecting images or objects that speak to the future you want to see; it is a tangible yet fantastic way of reminding you of where you’re heading.
A vision board can be used for both professional and personal aspirations.
A vision board creates visual representations of goals through a collage of pictures and words.
However, the key thing to note is that a vision board without any clear actions is just a board with many different pictures.
Find below twelve pointers to help create a vision board and keep you on track to achieve your goals.
- Reflect and review the previous year’s goals and try to understand what worked, what didn’t, and apply the learnings.
- Set goals and priorities.
- Reflect on what you’d like to focus on or change.
- Create a basic structure for the vision board.
- Find images and words for the vision board.
- Gather your materials and lay out your vision.
- Glue everything together – with glitter where necessary.
- Stay positive and trust your instincts.
- Keep the board somewhere you can see it.
- Re-assess your goals and adapt where you need to. This must be done every quarter, at least.
- Have an accountability partner.
- Enjoy the process!
