Making an Action Dream Board

Happy New Year, my friends!

A new year is now here. Time for a fresh start, resolutions, and setting goals. Everyone has their own ideas about resolutions and goal setting and I’m not going to claim to be an expert on those things. I will, however, be trying out a dream (vision) board to see how well they work. I’ve heard them called action boards with the hopes that you’ll be spurred into action instead of just dreaming. I love dreaming so I will be dubbing mine an action dream board – cause I will be taking some serious action! It’ll be an experiment for me.

Vision, Action, Dream Board.

Your board can be about whatever you, well, dream about, but sometimes it can be about whatever feels good to you at the time. (You may learn something about yourself in the process.) I feel it could be used as a fun therapy evening with friends or even alone with a feel-good movie or music playing in the background. It is advised to be as specific as possible so I’m going to focus in and do my best to be as specific as possible.

There are many categories that could be put on a vision board.

  1. Family
  2. Financial
  3. Spiritual
  4. Creativity
  5. Projects
  6. Self-improvement
  7. Travel
  8. Love
  9. Knowledge
  10. Health


I’ve chosen ten common ones (in no particular order), but the list is truly endless. My main focus is on gratitude, giving, and goals. I do have wants, desires, and needs and will be indulging in my dreams, but my main focus will be the first three. I’ll check back in a year to see how much I have accomplished. Let’s see if this works!

If you wish to give vision, dream, action boards a try I will suggest youtube, googling, or Pinterest for tons of inspiration. Happy dreaming and lets put this into action!
