If You’re Finding Your Vision Boards Aren’t Delivering Results, Try This Instead

  • Making one makes you feel good.
  • They’re great for visually-oriented people.
  • It’s a way of feeling like you’re doing something, which can be helpful when you’re in a dark place.

Sadly, Vision Boards Are Like Rocking Chairs: They Give You Something to Do But Don’t Get You Anywhere

Don’t make a vision board — make a plan.

Have You Ever Made a Vision Board That Was Realistic?

You probably cut out pictures from a magazine to create your board with:

  • Fancy cars
  • Exotic vacations
  • Flashy jewelry
  • A dream home

Dreaming is Fun, But Staying Reality-Centered Get Things Done

Vision boards may still be trendy, but that doesn’t mean they work.

  • Making small habit changes
  • Staying consistent
  • Starting small
  • Sticking to goal frameworks & making a plan
  • Finding an accountability partner
  • Finding a coach or mentor who will push you to reach your goals
