Are You On My Vision Board?

Featuring You On My Vision Board

While at a meeting I had a brilliant thought. (Even if I say so myself). Why not rebrand an upcoming “strategic planning” meeting to a “vision board” session? Theoretically, the concept is the same to create goals and a strategy to achieve during the next year. My colleagues responded with a resounding YES! Vision Board it is. Now several days later I’m incorporating the vision board exercise as part of my strategy to outreach strategy. Over the last decade, I have focused on reaching the adult daughters of my clients. Similar to me these women are the researchers, information seekers, and strategists for their families. However, I’ve never created a vision board with them in mind. That is until now.

My Vision Board Strategy

  1. Take action
  2. Revise
  3. Take action again

Get something on paper. This is where technology comes in. Use google to search for inspiration images. The image I’m using today is a draft. As I connect with more daughters it will change. The important thing is to get something on paper (hard copy or electronic). Similar to Nike just do it! To make my electronic board I used Canva.

Why You’re On My Vision Board

Though many of us prepare for retirement, very few prepare for aging. There is a difference. With age comes wisdom and the effects of our lifestyle. Of course, some win the genetic lottery and enjoy a lifetime of prosperity and good health. Unfortunately, we have no control over the actions of others which impact our lives. Which is why my work as an aging expert/gerontologist is so important to you. I’m here to provide you with the information, resources, and my specialty a strategy to enhance the quality of life and wellbeing of an older family member.
