By setting goals, we create a "visionary prize" for ourselves that help us stay focused and on track. Without having a goal and a PLAN, the “track” we must run to get to the prize is not clear. When we write out our goals, TAKE ACTION (MACs 2012 theme) and work each day to meeting them, it’s amazing what we can achieve. Few people REALLY understand how important this is to success or perhaps they do, but they just don’t do it.
A vision board is a tool that can help you to clarify and maintain a strong focus on achieving a specific goal. It is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you've gathered from various magazines or pictures. It’s simple, fun and effective for literally keeping your eye on the prize by being consciously reminded of your goals! You can also create virtual boards. If you spend a tremendous amount of time on the computer, a virtual board might be a better option. There are many online tools available where you can create a vision board and save it to your desktop. We created ours with Pinterest and will keep adding images throughout the year.

Setting goals and understanding how to stay on track towards a goal is essential. Whether you want to try to do something as simple as lose a few pounds, or something as complex as starting your own business, it is absolutely important to create and set goals, and then stick to them.
