Goals vs. Wishy Washy Wishes
On Monday morning a group of us attended a Lifeboard workshop. It was an inspiring way to start the week.
A Lifeboard is, to put it simply, a board onto which you collage images that represent your goals. It helps you articulate what you want in life, and then serves as a visual reminder to keep you focused on those goals—lofty, immediate, and everything in between. In a way, it helps turn your wishes into goals.
What’s the difference between a wish and a goal?
The answer is written pretty clearly on the pencils that come with Decoylab’s WISH and GOAL clipboards. The pencil that comes with WISH says, “Make my wishes come true” and the one with GOAL says, “I will achieve my goals.”
You can sit around hoping someone will make your wishes come true, or you can take action and actually achieve your goals.
Writing it down helps turn a wishy-washy wish into a concrete goal, and that goal into a reality.
(Anyone know who made the beautiful print above? I found it on Pinterest, but then couldn’t find who made it. Wish I could credit it properly!)
