George Washington Carver once said, “Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”
I’ve always been a visual person. When my husband throws out dimensions of a size, I tell him I need to see it drawn out. While I heard of a vision board, I never considered creating one, personally or for my business. This year, I might give it a try and create one on my own.
A vision board is a collage of images that provide a road map of the year. The images can include dreams, goals and inspiration. It’s a visual of things you want to achieve, a visual bucket list. A board can be physical – a board with cut outs from magazines, an inspiration wall or a journal. It can also be a digital board created through Canva, Freeform or Pinterest.
I began creating a board on Canva and realized that this might become a regular routine for my as I process the year prior and set goals for the new year. I quickly put together some goals onto my visual board that I want accomplish this year. I think the more I reflect this month (my decision to take a slow transition to the new year) it will expand and grow to include more goals and dreams.
While vision boards have been around for some time, it’s my first time trying to create one and I’m having a fun time putting it together.
