Have you ever considered creating a progress map, instead of a vision board? If you’re a visual person, a progress map can be a valuable tool to use on your journey. While vision boards have grown in popularity, all they do for you is show where you wish to be. There’s nothing tangible or forward moving about it. In reality, you need to figure out where you are, and the path you need to take before you can truly start moving toward your destination. Having clear “next steps” is not only directional, it’s motivational. You can literally watch yourself moving forward.
Plug things in, chart it out, piece out your journey in steps, and commit them to writing.
Choose your destination.
Chart your course.
Make it happen.
