If you’re a little like myself, the more you think of something you want to do or something youre progressively working on the more you go back and forth until we sit, focus and write it all down.
"The more complicated your image, the lower your comprehension".
Simplicity and understanding go hand in glove. Crowding too much of something isn’t good.
This is why strategy visualization is good to create a good roadmap only you understand. Here are some ways to begin your vision board.
Here is a general list, although your vision board may incorporate things that are not listed here:
- Time – give yourself plenty of time to put your board together. Do not put a limit or your creative juices. Invest the time in your vision board so that it actually works for you. Turn off the TV. Put on some inspirational music. Light a candle.
- Scissors, tape, pins, glue stick – whatever you need to craft your board.
- Some sort of board – you can use a cork board, a poster board, or a pin board.
- Markers, stickers, or other embellishments – these are completely optional. If embellishments make you feel good, then by all means, incorporate them.
- Magazines – this is where you can cut images and quotes from.
- Pinterest/Google/Instagram – more places to get the perfect visual reminders for your board.
- Color printer – if you plan on sourcing some or all of your images from the internet.
- Stuff that inspires you – photos, quotes, sayings, images, reminders all have a place on your board.
If this is your first time doing this, these are also ways to get to know yourself. You can always re create your vision board and yourself at anytime. The only difference between now and then, is that “IF” & when you do “start over” you will begin with experience & understanding
