As a business owner or entrepreneur, you are no doubt setting goals for yourself for this brand new year. Setting these goals and keeping them in sight is one of the best ways to take your business to the next level, which is of course what you want in 2016. But how do turn your grand vision into a beautiful reality?
and keep them in sight all year long. Creating a professional vision board is a really simple process, and you will find it to be a powerful tool for your business, as well as your professional life. Keep reading to check out the super easy steps for creating your own vision board.
1. Gather your materials.
Your vision board can be created using poster board, a bulletin board, cork board, or peg board. Really, the options are endless. Just choose the material you prefer, whatever is visually appealing to you and is easy for you to use. You’ll also need push pins, scissors, and visual references such as business related quotes, figures, photos, and texts. These are the basic items you’ll use to craft your vision board, and you can always add more materials as the year progresses.
2. Reflect on your vision.
What goals and dreams do you have for your professional self or your business in the New Year? Do you want to rebrand? Get a promotion? Reach a new audience? Try a new sales model? Whatever the case may be, take the time to reflect on your vision. See how it is unique to you, and decide how you wish for this vision to play out over the next 12 months.
3. Assemble your vision.
Once your vision is clear, you can begin to craft your board. Do this by assembling your favorite motivational quotes, photos of other entrepreneurs whom you feel inspired by, the titles of business-related books on this year’s reading list, and photos of things you wish to achieve. This will help you create a visually stunning board that reflects you and your business, as well as the goals you have for your professional life.
By the way, if you’re looking for some really great business-related books for this year, check out a few of my personal recommendations here:
4. Display your board.
Once your board is assembled, put it on display where it can be referenced daily. You’ll want to place it in a location where it’s easily seen so that you can reflect on it often. For me, this is in my office right next to my desk. Your vision board’s entire purpose is to serve as a constant reminder of where you’re going; a road map, so to speak, so don’t put it in a space where it can’t do its job.
5. Interact with the board.
Once the board is assembled, don’t be afraid to interact with it. Remove items as they are no longer relevant, and add items as they become important to you. The board is an ever-changing work in progress, just like you, and it must adapt to your needs, visions, and dreams. The idea isn’t for the board to remain stagnant, but to change as you change throughout the course of the year.
See how simple it is to create your own professional vision board? Consider crafting one for 2016 and see if it isn’t something that can help you reach your professional goals and dreams.
