There’s absolutely nothing like conquering goals. I mean stepping out of your comfort zone, working your tail off, getting to your deadline and accomplishing that very thing that you’ve worked so incredibly hard for…..it’s the most satisfying feelings you’ll ever have.
The challenge of accomplishing goals is staying motivated, and let’s face it, if it were easy, everyone would be living out their dreams.
In order to achieve your dreams and conquer your goals, you’ve got to have systems in place and strategic tools that keep you focused and help to keep your momentum going.
There are several strategies and tools that I use, but one of my favorites is my vision board.

What is a vision board?
A vision board is simply a tool to help you envision what you really want in life and keeps you focused and motivated to continue moving forward.
It can be one of the most powerful tools in your goal crushing arsenal. It’ll serve as a reminder of what you want your life to look like and help you embrace the changes you need to make in order to get there.
I keep my vision board right in front of me at all times and make a point to review it every morning. This way I’m ensuring that the tasks on my daily conquer list are getting me closer to my goals.
If they aren’t, I tweak my schedule so that I’m sure to produce. (By the way, “producing” can mean just about anything here. Not just making money, but whatever it is that’s propelling you forward and towards your goals.)
A vision board can be made out of almost anything you want. A cork board, a beautiful picture frame, (Although, I recommend a frame that opens from the front – more on this below.) even a metal grid.
Truthfully, there is an endless possibility of materials out there.
I actually use a grid “board” and got mine for under $15 at Target. It’s inexpensive, looks classy, and allows me to switch things out as needed.
The most important thing to remember about a vision board is that it only works if you do!
How to create a vision board
- Set your goals. If you need help setting goals, read Time Management Made Easy – Setting Goals.
- Gather inspirational pictures that represent your goals. (For instance, one of my goals is to spend 3 months in Italy when we retire, so I’ve put up a beautiful picture of the Italian coast to keep me motivated.)

- Arrange and decorate your vision board in such a way that will inspire you every day.
Tips for creating a vision board that works for you
- Get a board that’ll allow you easy access. As you work through your goals from week to week, month to month, and year to year, your goals may need to be tweaked. You’re going to want easy access to your vision board so you can update it easily.
A picture frame that you have to pull off the wall and open the back can be cumbersome to change. Remember: the whole point of having a vision board is to motivate you. If it’s going to be a little more difficult to pull off the wall, you probably won’t mess with it.
- Make it inspiring.
That’s going to mean something different to me than it does for you. You need a board that’s going to get you excited and keeps you motivated to push through when you’re ready to quit.
- Hang your board where you can see it every single day.
Go after your goals, my friend! And go big!
Remember that nothing happens inside of your comfort zone. So set those goals, craft your vision board and get to work!
