Are you excited about the new year? Do you have huge goals you want to accomplish? Are you bored of just writing your goals down only to forget about them by February? Have you tried a traditional vision board before but this year you want to do something different? Well, a digital vision board could be the next step to keep motivated you throughout the year. In this post, we will cover how to make a digital vision board in 4 easy steps!
What is a Vision Board
A vision board is a virtual representation of your goals and desires. It is a board that can help inspire you and keep you motivated while you work towards your goals for the year. A digital vision board is made online using images found on google as opposed to the typical way which involves cutting up images from magazines and sticking them to a poster board.

Why You Should Make A Vision Board
You may have already heard that writing down your goals is important if you actually want to achieve them. In the same way, creating a vision board is important because it allows you to turn your thoughts and goals, that may seem unattainable in your mind, to a visual representation that makes them more attainable.
Vision boards are great because you can place them in an area you frequent so that they remind you of your goals. It’s also easier to picture yourself achieving those goals when you have the image right in front of you.
How To Make A Digital Vision Board
Step 1: Envision
Envision the life you want this year and the goals you want to accomplish. Take the time to write down the major goal areas you hope to focus on this year. You can write down the categories and then list all the goals you wish you accomplish within those major areas.
Here are some goal areas to consider:
- Personal Growth
Step 2: Gather All The Images
Once you have an idea of the areas you’ll be focusing on throughout the year, and you have a vision for how you want these goals to come about, look for images that represent this vision.
You can find images on Pinterest or Google.
As you look for these images, do it by categories so you don’t get distracted. For example, you can first search for images related to family, or use your own images, and once you’ve found enough images, move on to the next goal area until you have gathered all the images that represent the life you want.
Once you find all the images, save them to your phone or computer.
Step 3: Put Them Together
Decide how you want to organize your images. In my case, I separated them by goal categories and proceeded to make a collage of four images that represented each category area. Once I did that, it was easy to put them together into a bigger image on canva.
As you can see below, I selected four images for each category and added those images together to create a quadrant…
You can use any collage app to create the quadrant. I used Photogrid to create these.
Once you have all your categories put together, head over to canva and place them all together.
- Choose the size you want your final poster to be. I chose 24 x 36.
- Upload all of your images to canva.
- Choose a grid or use a blank canvas.
- Organize all the images on the board.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
After you have organized all your images, you can add more detail. Add a quote or a saying, or a word that represents your year. You may also choose to print your vision board so you can place it somewhere in your home, keep it on your phone as a background or on your computer as wallpaper. The important thing is to place it where you can see it every day.
Putting It Into Action
Creating a vision board is exciting and gives you a new sense of hope but the most important thing is to keep going after you have set the goals. Set short term goals that will keep you motivated as you are working towards your long term goals.
Here are a few ways to keep yourself motivated:
1. Look At Vision Board Daily
Place your vision board in an area where you can see it daily. This allows you to remind yourself of your goals. Place your vision board at the forefront of your mind when you are planning for the week or day to keep and plan activities that line with your vision.
2. Review Your Progress
As you implement your goals, you will make progress and be closer to the vision you have for yourself. Pay attention to this as it will keep you motivated to keep going.
3. Celebrate Success
There is nothing like looking back and realizing that your life turned out the way you envisioned it! Celebrate those small wins as you accomplish the goals you have set. And celebrate even more when in the end you see that you accomplished all that you set out to accomplish.
