First, we need to figure out what we want to include on our vision board.
Create subject categories by figuring out what’s most important to you! These will be the types of goals you want to accomplish and what kind of content you wish to include on your vision board. A few examples include Travel, Personal, Career, Financial and Inspiration.
Travel: Where do you want to go? More road trips? See more of your own state? Other states? Are there certain activities you want to do? What’s on your bucket list? Think about timeline and costs to make sure you are making attainable travel goals!
Personal: These can be physical, mental or emotional goals. Weight loss and exercising are two of the most common goals. Setting boundaries and becoming more independent, mending relationships, or letting go of unhealthy ones are a few more ideas. This could even be as simple as watching less TV and being more active!
Career: Are you happy where you are currently? What’s your “next big move” in your career? How do you plan to get there? How can you break down your “big move” into smaller, more attainable steps?
Financial: Do you have debt and a timeline to pay it off? Do you want to have a certain amount in your savings by a certain date? To make sure the goals are attainable you need to do a little math and create a budget if you don’t already have one! The best way to keep it from being attainable is to take a wild guess and throw a random number out there then realize later it’s not do-able.
Inspiration: This is the fun part! You’ll want to include lots of inspiration! Get pictures a few different ways, I like the old-fashioned way, magazines! You can get ideas or even order graphics off Pinterest and other online sources. Amazon has great quotes you can use, I’ve used the sticky quotes you put on walls for my vision boards in the past.
Plan out the board before you paste! Grab a scratch sheet of paper and do a quick sketch of the categories and content you want. Cut out pictures you think you’ll use from the magazines and separate them into categories, so you can go through them and pick your favorites when you’re ready to paste. When we’re ready to start the board, I’m going to just use sharpies and write directly on it but if you want to get really fancy you can buy letter stencils or stickers. Then you can paste the pictures around the content. And BAM! You’re done!
