Creating a Vision Board

I’m writing a second book that I hope to publish within three years hopefully more like within two years.

One aspect of this I might feature is creating a vision board which I think is useful unlike certain critics of doing this.

My own vision board stands against a wall in the hallway. I tacked to it photos, postcards, and magazine advertisement–along with fortune cookie fortunes like “Fate Loves the Fearless” and “A Goal is a Dream with a Deadline.”

Anything goes in decorating a vision board. You can use a concert ticket, fabric, ribbon, most anything to visually represent a goal you have for your life.

I recommend viewing the board once a week.

While it can become wallpaper, a vision board is also an enduring visual memoir of the person you are and who you aspire to be.

For that, it can’t be beat. The vision board can certainly cheer you every time you see it–like a little thrill to discover yourself and your potential.

The color red and strong women in chic clothes figure in my own board.

This is just an idea for a tool for growth and change. Oprah Winfrey was a big fan of them years ago.

I’d be happy to hear from readers if they created a board.
