We are still at the beginning of this so promising year. I am very much excited about it and guess you are as well.
For me, planning is inspiring creative time, and you, as a creative soul, I know you surely have dreams of 2022 you'd like to celebrate in 12 months. Do you?
Here is a different take on New Year's entrepreneurial planning.
You've heard of vision boards, the out-pictured goals we want to realize.
So how about adding to the planning you've done with recaps and numbers the fun creative tool of a vision board.
We all have our dreams in our minds. But how about bringing them into the first 3D form of a collage depicting what we want to experience in the next 12 months?
A Vision Board makes Business Planning/ goal setting Fun Again and brings our plans closer to the feel of reality, inspiring emotions and anticipation of the sensory experience.
Business planning doesn't need to be limited to the numbers - Let's breathe life into your 12-months goals.
The Business Plan That Isn't
What if you could plan your business with Fun, colourful photos and inspirational quotes and phrases instead? What would that do for your daily motivation?
Well, that's what a vision board will do for you. By collecting images representing your dreams and aspirations, you'll have a constant reminder of where you're going and even why you started your business or do the work you do in the first place.
Maybe you want to spend more time with your kids as they grow up or have enough money to take that vacation to Europe finally.
What about that house in the country you've always dreamed of owning, or the sporty little red car that's been calling your name.
None of these things will find a place in a traditional business plan, but they're perfect for your vision board. More importantly, they're critical to your long-term success. Without your dreams, it's nearly impossible to remain focused and on track when it comes to business growth, but with these reminders, it's easy!
Why Vision Boards Work
Does all this feel pretty airy-fairy to you? You're not alone. Many of us were trained to believe that business had to be all about numbers and stats and that there was no room for Fun to make money.
I followed this strategy for a very long time. How boring!
Now I think differently. I call my vision boards my dream-building vortex ( because of the energy I'm getting from them.)
From my mentors, I know that many of the most successful people in the world routinely use vision boards to help clarify their dreams and keep their goals front of mind. And that's precisely why vision boards work so well. They allow you to easily see what you're working toward, whether it's a shiny new car, a big, beautiful home, or an exotic vacation.
By keeping visual reminders within sight, you're constantly aware of your "why," and that's a powerful motivator, no matter what you're working on.
Of course, no banker will accept your vision board as proof of viability and give you a loan based on it. But when it comes to clarifying your dreams, pinpointing your real goals, and getting excited about your business again, you just can't beat a personal, colourful vision board. Give it a try. You might surprise yourself!
Create your vision board and draw the energy you need to create the momentum leading to reaching even more than you planned.
May the next 12 months be your best year ever!
