Vision boards based in “why” help you stay focused on your goals
It is procrastination, but it doesn’t look that way.
It looks like bingeing Netflix, playing Call of Duty, having people who are drama queens or vampires in your life, finding chores that need done – immediately – or the world will end, roaming social media, volunteering for crap you really don’t want to do, as well as emails, meetings, more meetings, errands, etc.
Time wasters appear as important work or something you deserve.
But, in all
However, time wasters can appear as well in the form of too many projects and ideas all vying for your attention and none of them getting the attention they fully deserve.
Focus Your Priorities
You must focus. Believe me, that is super hard to do. I know.
I’m one of those people with a thousand ideas and like crabs in a bucket.
One idea that gets near the top gets close to breaking free of the bucket of ideas is pulled down by the next new shiny squirrel idea.
It was easier for me when I decided to quit my day job and start my business. The difference was I now had a single focus – to be able to spend more time with my children by doing freelance copywriting work.
Vision Boards Help You Stay Focused
Anytime – ANYTIME – I started to stray, I would look at my vision board with my children’s cute little faces. The result was, I could focus again on the things I needed to do.
Time is a Limited Resource
By being able to stay focused and go fulltime freelance I was able to be with my kids more, write a best seller, help businesses grow, and set my schedule and work life. I had time.
I had control of my time and how I spent it.
“What could and would you do if you had control of how you spent your time?”
Why Vision Boards Work
A vision board helps you stay focused and on track because it is a visual reminder of what your goal is and why you have that goal.
However, seeing your goal and the why behind the goal every day helps you avoid those pitfalls of wasted time and shiny squirrels.
