You’re ready to make 2023 the best yet for your career, but you’re not quite sure what that means. To help you figure this out, you’re thinking about creating a vision board.
Creating a visual depiction of your goals can help you get your thoughts in order, so you can create a plan for success. Prominently displaying it on a wall in your home or office can also serve as a constant reminder of where you want to be by the end of 2023 and how you plan to get there.
If you’ve never created a vision board, you’ll need a piece of poster board, a stack of magazines, scissors and glue. Once you’ve gathered these materials, use the following tips to create a board that will help you manifest the success you deserve this year.
Three Tips to Create an Inspiring Vision Board
Set Career Goals for the New Year
Think about where you want to be by the end of the year. Maybe you want a long-awaited promotion or perhaps you want to learn a few new skills and move into a different type of role than you’re currently in. Be honest with yourself, as there are no wrong career goals, as long as they feel right to you.
Find pictures that represent your broad goals and glue to them to your vision board.
Break Big Objectives Into Smaller Steps
When you’ve figured out what you want on a larger scale, it’s time to figure out how you’ll get there. This might involve taking an online course, attending more networking events or finding a mentor. Figuring out how you’ll get there now will make your larger goals feel less intimidating, because you’ll be able to see your path to success.
No matter how small the step, find a picture to represent it and adhere it to your vision board.
Find Your Inspiration
When the going gets tough, you sometimes need a reminder of why you’re working so hard to achieve your goals. For example, you might be working toward a promotion so you can afford to buy a new home for your family. Or, you could be hoping to get a job with a company whose mission is close to your heart, so you can have a positive impact on others.
Find a picture that accurately portrays your motivation to put on your vision board.
