Having goals in college is important, and there’s no better way to display your aspirations than a vision board.
Choose your goals
Start by defining your goals. What do you want to accomplish this year? And in the next few years? A vision board can be a mix of short-term goals, like reading more, that help you achieve long-term goals, like continuing to learn throughout life. The board is also a good place to get inspiration to help you stay motivated.
Choose your board
You can use a variety of bases for your vision board: cork boards, dry erase boards, notice boards. Basically anything that is flat and can be hung with the word “plank” in it will work just fine.
You will need a few basic things like glue, tape, and thumbtacks to build the board. When it comes to decorating the picture, the sky is the limit. You can print motivational quotes, family photos, or symbols to represent goals and inspiration.
The example board features a clock to represent better time management, an image of a ladder to remind the designer to balance work and family life, and photos of their dog and child to remind them of what’s wrong with them. account.
Put it all together
This step is pretty straightforward: grab all of the gear you’ve gathered for the board and go for it. A good idea is to set long term goals that probably won’t change with duct tape or glue, but secure short term or modifiable things with push pins.
In the example table, the creator’s dog image and child image are secured with push pins so that they can be updated over time with newer images. It also has empty space to add new goals or inspiration.
Hang it somewhere you see it everyday
This is one of the most important steps! The vision board will not be effective if you throw it in the back of the closet, never to see the light of day again. Hang it somewhere where you’ll see it often to remind you of your goals.
