Idea to Reality

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. He who looks outside, dreams. He who looks inside, awakens."
Carl Jung

Inspired idea

I walk around all the time with ideas rolling around in my head, and I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how I can make them work. When I get those big ideas I want to remember, I usually write them down in my notebook, and promptly forget about them because I know they are written down.

I realized the other day while paging through my notebook that if I had these ideas on my action board they would stay in the front of my mind inspiring me want to work on them.

My business vision board
Creating a vision board specific to your ideas(s), mind maps, or timeline colleges, are wonderful options to inspire new ideas while working through the process of making your idea a reality. You don't have to do this with every idea, but for those big ideas you know you don't want to forget about, this could be a great way to start the process.

Mind map idea
I am going to start creating mini vision boards with space to add notes and expand my ideas. Want to create your own? Here is a mini Mini vision board for you to plan out your big ideas.

As creative people we get new ideas all the time, why not keep them where you can see them, and have them inspiring your work toward putting them into action.

How do you stay on top of your big ideas?

  1. A vision board sounds like a great way to keep track of all those ideas!

  2. Ah, I saw this quote yesterday! We are in the same vibe :)

  3. I love the mind map. I'm the same way about writing things down and then forgetting them!

  4. I do need to create a vision board. . . for now, I use Pinterest!

  5. Oh yes, I've always got many ideas rolling around in my head. Some days there really are too many and I have to shut it off for fear of going crazy! ;) I do keep lists, and have little post-its littered everywhere, reminding me of the next best thing... :)

  6. I love vision/inspiration boards! I have one specifically for my bucket list, which helps me keep my goals in mind. :) By the way, Valerie, I love your vision board - it's fantastic! :D
