Inner Creative Blog - How to create a vision board that works -

What are you going to do from now on? On making a plan…

Given the recent global events you might be wondering ‘What now?’
Yes, times are uncertain. We can never fully guarantee nor predict an outcome – no matter how certain.
But I love this quote that I found by Maria Robinson.
Maria Robinson quote featured in Inner Creative blog 'What are you going to do from now on?"
Sometimes we’re not happy with where we find ourselves in our life or business.

On regret… (as inspired by Lucille Ball)

This morning the following Lucille Ball quote came into my inbox. And it got me thinking about regret…

Inner Creative Blog - "On regret..."

I try to live my life without regret.
This might mean speaking up to ask a question. Drawing a line in the sand and taking a stand for something I believe in. Accepting an invitation even when I’m nervous about going. Sharing an image online of something I’ve created. Giving my kids a kiss at the school gate. Having a hard discussion to clear the air. Asking for something. The list is endless.

How are you going to live your big dream today?

With the start of a new year there’s lot of talk about resolutions, setting goals and dreaming of the future.

I think that it’s important to dream, explore the possibilities, and imagine what could happen. We need something to aim for, inspire us, and to help us work out which way to go and what choices to make. But sometimes our dreams can feel a little too big, almost impossible. Some may tell you to give up on your ‘fantasy’, or to translate it into something more realistic and manageable.

I say ‘ Dream big, step small.’ We need to stretch ourselves and our possibilities And we can’t do that if we’re staying small and in the realm of tangible fact and our current day reality. So, go for it! Dream big, step small.
Dream big, step small. Natalia Walker quote. Inner Creative.

So you might think that the rest of this blog might be about how to work backwards from your big dream and chunk it down into smaller steps that you can slowly work through towards your dream. And that’s a totally valid and sensible way of going about it. However, I’m going to talk about how to go even smaller, and to think about what you can do today: how are you going to live your big dream today? Continue reading

Planning Tool – Stop, Start, Continue. Part 2.

Creating a vision for the year ahead (or for a new project) is always fun. But before you can start to work out what you want, it’s good to think about where you came from.

In the previous blog (Part 1), we introduced the Stop, Start, Continue tool (the 3 questions):

  • What do I want to stop?Inner Creative Planning Tool: Stop Start Continue. Part 2
  • What do I want to start?
  • What do I want to continue?

We also covered how to pick the topic to focus your questions on. You can use this tool in any personal, work or business context, from creating your vision for the year ahead to reviewing your business plan. This tool is useful for anything that you would like to change, or a problem that needs exploring.

In this blog, we’ll be unpicking those 3 questions a little more, and expanding on them so you can work out what you need to do to make and support your changes. Continue reading
