In today’s Monday Money Minute, we talk about how to make a vision board for the iPhone generation, one you can take with you everywhere to guarantee success.
From Language to Vision Boards
Last week David shared how our language dictates our results, successful or otherwise. “I can” is better than “I want” and “I will” makes I want a reality. This week we’re sharing our version of vision boards. The first time we made vision boards we were living in the basement. We followed the traditional instructions and had great, though inartistic, vision boards to hang on our wall. Over the years, those vision boards inspired us and, in fact, most of what we put on those vision boards became our reality.
We’re now debt free and live in an awesome mid-century modern condo. We like sleek styles and clean lines, traditional of mid-century modernism. When it came time to create new vision boards, I didn’t want our condo made of $0.10 poster board, throw-away magazines and Elmer’s Glue. We went digital.
What’s Are Digital Vision Boards?
As David shared in his Monday Money Minute: Turning $100 into $3,000, we have an Apple TV. Apple TV has screensaver functionality, like on computers and smartphones. Rather than go all Hobby Lobby, we went online and saved pictures and images that defined our updated versions of success. We have pictures of our modern homes in Buena Vista and Palm Springs, David’s Audi, how we’ll look physically by next summer and inspirational quotes. When the screensaver kicks on while listening to music through the Apple free radio app, our vision board shows. We’re constantly reminded of our future.
We’ve done this with our smart phones, personal laptops and iPads and even the laptops we use for our day jobs, albeit more G-rated. People usually have images of their loved ones as screen savers, which is great. For us, we have actual pictures of our loved ones around or condo and our office desks and use technology for our vision boards.
Having this inspiration on my phone has helped me not be the office fatty this holiday season, as every other day brings another pot luck, bagel buffet or luncheon. If I want to look like the guy on my phone, I’ve banned bagel buffets.
