I don’t know about you, but sometimes when an idea comes to mind, for me it can either go two ways: I will either get too flustered with all of the possible directions it could take, or I will draw blank… Either way, both can be stressful especially when you want that idea to come to its full potential
Something that has helped me a lot in organizing my thoughts are vision boards. Some call them inspirational boards, or organizational boards, but they all serve the same purpose—which is to help you define what you really want.
If you are still unsure on whether you should make a vision boards, here are some of the reasons why I love vision boards and hopefully they will inspire you to create one of your own:
- Vision boards can be about anything you want. You can fill them up with quotes, pictures, notes. They can have a background, or have a theme, it’s completely up to you.
- They can make an office or a desk stand out. I like to hang mine right above my desk, and I simply love how it wakes up my desk area.
- They make a great DIY project. This can be a project that you can do over the weekend, or over the course of a few months. As long as you feel like you are finding the right pieces to your board, there isn’t really a time frame for it.
- They make your idea seem more real and attainable. Most of the time, ideas do not fall through because we do not develop them. Think of them as small flower seeds, if you do not properly take care of them, they simply won’t grow. The same goes with your idea; if you do not support it and consistently give it the attention that it requires from you, it will just stall and eventually die.
- You get to learn a lot about yourself from doing them. The moment you start cutting out pictures that you like or quotes that you find meaningful, you begin to see a pattern of your likes and dislikes. Knowing what you want and what you don’t want is a great tool in shaping and molding your idea as you see fit.
