Last Day of January

This month has been a blur, but I've accomplished a great deal so far. I owe a lot of my productivity to my vision board.
Three things on my vision board are now reality.  I've written about visions boards in the past, but for the new followers, it's a board the size of a poster (about 2 feet x 3 feet) filled with pictures of the things I want to do this year.
Jilda and I both do one at the first of January, and my vision board this year had a picture of a cruise ship, and I booked the cruise on Monday. I had a picture of us playing coffee shops, and we played twice in January, and we have five more dates during the first quarter of the year.
I had a graphic for meditation, and I've meditated more times in January that I have in many years.
The trick is to fill your board with pictures and words that have emotional impact. Things that make feel that yearning deep in your gut. Things that make you smile when you look at them.
That's what my vision board does. Each morning as I drink coffee, I take a few minutes to look at every picture on it, and read every word.
I'm not sure how it works, but it does.
If you don't have a vision board, I highly recommend you do one for yourself. You'll thank me one day.
Here's a link for how to do a vision board and what one looks like.


  1. Sounds like a very good idea.

  2. What a great, great idea, Rick. I have never done one of these. I keep a book with a record of things that I need/want/wish to do ...but I have never put pictures to it! I LOVE the idea-Diana

  3. Like Diana above, I thought I was basically keeping this in a notebook. Putting it on a poster board where I can see it each day sounds like a good idea. Kind of weeds out the less important stuff too. Thanks!

  4. I think I need to do one of these.

  5. Your vision board has certainly inspired you and Jilda!! Hope your February will accomplish even more! Take care

  6. It sounds like a lot of work to put a vision board together. I just write my list and cross each item as I get it done.
    I can see that a vision board is a great tool though.


  7. I promised I would do a vision board when I read about Jilda's . OK, now I'm really going to do it. Thanks for the link on the how-to..I'll let you know how it goes! Hey, Feb. isn't too late to start! (so much closer to spring!)

  8. A lovely idea. I would fill mine with photos of past, present, and hopes for future.
