I’ve still been feeling quite flat recently. Which is a little bit of a surprise because I thought my Top Ten list to Awesomeness…would help me feel like I had things nailed. After all, a good old plan of action usually gets my spirits pumping!
But I still have this feeling in my stomach that I can’t quite put my finger on.
So i was thinking maybe it is time to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Where is that vision board I started at the beginning of the year?
Like I said when I was talking about my Top ten list of things to achieve work-life awesomeness…you need to start with an overarching goal or vision which you are trying to achieve and then the ten steps are just ways to keep you sane while you are trying to achieve it. So maybe my lack of motivation is coming from a lack of clarity on where I am going?
I know the idea is not new, but I remember it being suggested as a key tool, during online course I was doing by Rachel MacDonald (who is totally awesome by the way)…I confess that initially I thought the idea was a little bit lame. I’m not a creative type, I don’t regularly use my pinterest account and I always did poorly at school assignments that required cutting and pasting. So I didn’t think this exercise was going to be good for me. But I am good at doing what I’m told, and diligently went about starting to find and piece together photos, quotes and things that I thought represented where I wanted to be.
And I started to engage with the process. It really helped.
I like the idea of not having to have specific goals. I am not entirely sure, to be honest, where I want to be in a years time…let alone in 5 or 10 years. So instead of trying to pinpoint a target straight away, simply starting to pull together a picture of things that I like or inspire me… and then an overall picture does start to come together. I have a better sense of who I want to be and with that, what I might want to achieve.
So, I’m thinking maybe it is time for a shake up of my vision board. I might need to dig around a few new things. It might help to give me the motivation I’m looking for, to kick my butt out of this little flat place I have landed in.
