The BENEFITS of Creating a Vision Board (esp. for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
What is vision and why is it important for the D.I.Y. Rock Star?
Although to many of you, the idea of vision may sound a little woowoo. “All I wanna do is play some music, man!” might be what you’re saying. Hey, I get it. We went for nearly 30 years not having any clear musical vision and we never really accomplished many of the things we started and seemed so passionate about at the time. Time is a non-renewable resource, so I wouldn’t wish having no clear vision on ANYONE, especially you.
So, what is vision? According to online Oxford Dictionary, vision is “The ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.” Still don’t get it? The key words in that definition are “future plan.” I know you’re probably thinking that we ALL have future plans, but do we have a central focus to those plans that, if you stick with it and do work toward it, you can eventually walk in that picture in your mind about who you are and what you could accomplish? That’s what a vision is and what it can do for you.
Why a board, though?
“A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life,” according to makeavisionboard.com.
