The first time I created a motivational collage was for a couple of SparkPeople challenges. One activity involved assembling a visual college. The other was the creation of a visual motivator.
As a visual person, I took it upon myself to combine the two activities into a single collage. I felt my visions were synonymous with my motivators.
After I created my first collage, I printed it out on sticky paper and stuck it in places where I felt it would hold the most significance for me.
My updated collage reflects the following:
- Complete the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training
- Say Goodbye
- Get Cisco certified (again)
- Complete the Athens Classic Marathon
I like how the collage serves as a constant reminder of my objectives. The visual helps keep me accountable and focused on my goals.
As I reach the milestones, I get a certain sense of satisfaction from being able to remove the completed items.
