It's easy to get overwhelmed.
I've found myself sitting down and writing a list that can easily consist of 25 things that I would like to work on. However, I've found that I'm most productive when I create a short to do list with specific action items.
The same goes for your vision board.
I've seen so many women pull together vision boards by simply cutting up magazines and gluing pictures without giving any real thought to where they want to be. Your vision isn't in the magazines, you have to set the direction you want your ship to sail.
Before you begin cutting out pictures and words, start with a piece of paper and a pencil (old school, I know!). Start writing out a brief vision statement of where you want to be at the end of the year. I know some folks say that a vision statement should be at maximum of 25 words, whatever works for you, just be concise. After you've written your vision statement, begin writing out action items that will help you achieve that goal.
Now that your vision has a focus, you can begin to search for pictures and words that are in alignment.
You can have more than one vision board; you can create vision boards for different areas of your life and place them in a collage picture frame. You can also make them digital by creating a board on Pinterest or creating a collage using PicMonkey and making it wallpaper for your computer. Whatever you do, your vision board needs to be somewhere you can see it daily. If you want to be even more specific, attach due dates to your action items and put them on your board. This will help you check things off your list throughout the year.
Are you going to or have you created a vision board for 2013? What's on it?
