Misadventures: The Vision Board

Don’t forget to like and share.

A recent blog post (recent to me at least) by Specscladeyes talks about how to make a vision board. Sounded pretty interesting to me. I’d heard of vision boards before but mostly just passed them by. For the first few minutes, I thought they were the same thing as a mind map.

My first problem was the quote for the year. I’m terrible at finding good quotes. So, I planned to search for “quotes.” I’d only gotten the first few letters in before the predictive search showed “quotes for vision board.” Who knew.

My search brought up a lot of Pinterest sites. There was even an Etsy link where you could buy quotes and kits. Bizarre. But, for those lazy and cheap people–namely me–there were the images. You can also just search for “quotes.” If you’re on Google, it’ll list famous people that you can then click on and get more information about them, including–you guessed it–quotes. Personally, I liked the Albert Einstein quotes. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” But, I’m not sure how much help that is for a vision board; unless your goal is to become a better/successful YouTube tutorial person.

Next problem was how to make the board. The process is quite simple; it’s like doing a collage. My problem was the fact I have no room for things like a vision board. I’d have to do it digitally/virtually. Specscladeyes suggests Pinterest, but I didn’t want it to be on the Internet. A search for “vision board app” brought up a few apps that can help. Some were free, others not so much. It was about this time, I realized I could use the image editor software that I already had, such as Photoshop or the ProCreate app. The Adobe Spark Post app even has collage layouts. I just needed the pictures.

Getting pictures was no problem at all. There are thousands of sites. I was about to search for my first picture when I realized something important: I hadn’t listed my goals. Kind of hard to find pictures when you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Okay, goal 1: Make goals.
