My Bulletin Board, My Best Friend

(If You Want to Write)

The book of the month is The Success Principles for Teens if you haven't noticed. Jack Canfield and Kent Healy emphasize the power of visualization and vision boards. Just like a calendar reminds you of what day it is and what you have going on, a vision board reminds you of what you're aiming for.

After reading their book, I re-organized my hitherto boring bulletin board. I have interviews with famous writers on there, pictures of places I want to go, inspiring quotes as well as papers I don't want to lose and my writing goals and ideas. There's also a picture of me with my cousins and an envelope from one of my favorite colleges.

My board keeps me focused, and according to Canfield and Healy, it will help get me to where I want to go. I am a non-crafty person, but even I could do this. What about you? Anybody have incredible bulletin board ideas?

Hmmm... actually, the way you described it - with all the creative things around the edges - it kind of makes me want to start that bulletin board idea. ;)
