I confess that when I first heard of vision board software I wasn’t impressed. My thought was that using a vision board for my desktop wall paper would be pointless as I usually have so many windows open that I never see my wallpaper. Why bother, right?
Wrong! The discovery of the Vision Board System product completely changed my mind. This is a great little piece of software, simple to install and to use, and I am delighted with the results. It allows you to create your own vision board as a video that plays as a “movie" on your computer screen. You can click to play your vision board on demand, and that is nice. But better still, you can set it as your screen saver (which the program will do for you automatically, no hassle).
I had no idea what an impact this could have. The first vision board I created is actually quite simple, but what I’ve discovered is that having it pop up and play at intervals during the day is wonderfully refreshing. With all the daily tasks and distractions and usual stresses, it is so easy to completely forget where I want my focus to be. Yet now I have this delightful reminder, like a dear friend tapping me on the shoulder now and then and whispering a word of encouragement to help me stay on track.
The video I created is short, not long enough to be an intrusion, exactly long enough to be a welcome interruption that reminds me of what is truly important to me, who I really am, and where I’m going on my journey.
If you think that vision board software isn’t for you, I encourage you to reconsider. I’m certainly glad I did!
