Right now, we will just focus on how to design one. I’m assuming you know everything there is to know about vision boards at this point.
Step by step how to design a successful vision board
This is the part where you actually sit your butt down and put on your thinking hat. I would highly suggest doing this on a really good day, where you feel really good and capable of doing literally everything. You then try to envision yourself at the end of the year, what would you have at the end of the year that would make you feel fulfilled? You need to envision this in your head, whether it is your health or body, money, saving, whatever it is, you need to have it in your mind first.
Take your time for this, because it is really crucial to be sure of your goals and what you may want to have by the end of the year. Envision with all the feels, because real soon, it will become your reality. You can also go through new years resolutions that could possibly give you ideas of certain things your mind may have skipped.
2. Make a list
Now, after brainstorming and being clear on what you really want. Get a pen and paper and write down everything you would like to accomplish by the end of the year. The last thing you want is to finish making your entire vision board only to realize you actually forgot something. Which is why it is essential to take your time in that first step, that’s where the bulk of productivity is.
3. Get your vision board printables
After figuring out what you would want to achieve, now you go online to find images that relate to it. You can get quotes that inspire you. Pictures of things you would want to have. Photoshop yourself or your name in the space if you have to, to make the vision more real. You can also find some vision board printables here.
4. Get your supplies
After having your list of things to accomplish by the end of the year. Next you will put together supplies to help you create the vision board. These supplies are;
A1 or A2 cardboard/ carton/ card
*ps.A1 is bigger than A2. It depends on how big you want to go
Vision board printables *printed
Glue or double sided tape
*you can use one sided tape, double sided is just easier if you don’t have glue
5. Start crafting!
Congrats! You have gotten to the fun part. Where you actually start putting together your vision board. Get your vision board printables and start cutting them and pasting them to your board. Arrange it however you like. If you want, you can have your personal life goals on one side and professional life goals on the other. But whatever you do, do not make more that one vision board, because you need to focus on only one. You can get some ideas of vision boards here to get you started.
Lastly but not the least, hang up your vision board where you can see it daily. I know your room is pretty and all, but you need this in order for it to work. Check in every week to be sure that everything you are spending our time on is getting you closer to that vision board. If you notice time wasting activities, meaning anything that is not moving you closer to your vision board, cut it out. It doesn’t matter what it is, write it down if you have to, you’ll get to it next year. For real. Keep this up, keep checking back to be sure you are on track, You got this!
