Hey there, hero!

I love vision boards.

I hate the power that people sometimes hand them, because I hate for people to be disappointed.

Why I love vision boards comes down to one thing: focus.

Do you use a vision board? How do you use it, and what do you assign to its meaning? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. PHEW! You have just taken a silly burden off my shoulders. Rather than spending the time making a vision board, I can make a simple list to keep me on track. Brilliance in your simplicity. Thanks!

  2. There are so many helpful tools you can use, but they’re just tools. They don’t do the work for you. The one piece of advice I’ve found to be dependably helpful is this: have a bias for action. That’s what makes all the other tools work.

    I know you’ve all heard that somewhere before.

  3. I’ve just found out about bullet-journaling, a tool to both plan your days and track habits. Bullet journals can be just sober black and white, but it seems to be a girly thing to make them artsy and pretty to be more motivating. What is your opinion?

  4. David, I totally agree with you about how giving our power away is fruitless.
    Decades ago I worked through the book The Artist’s Way. One assignment was to create a vision board. I dutifully did it, pinned it in the hall to my office, and saw it every time I came and went. And then I moved — several times. 10-ish years ago I came across it. I was stunned! Everything on that board had come true: me walking the beach in fancy clothes (and going to Disneyland in my evening gown with my husband in his tux), owning a PDA (aka smartphone), traveling the world, and even having a house with window seats doubling as bookcases — with mountain views through the windows. The visuals of a vision board were powerful for me and kept my index card (yes, that’s what I use now) on track to create the life I live and am creating.

    Keep your pearls coming!
