If you haven’t noticed lately America’s latest trend, and really addiction, is on quick fixes.

If it can’t be had instantly, it’s not worth the effort or time for the average individual in 2016. In an age of smart phones, Amazon Prime and Domino’s Pizza delivery in under 17 minutes, how can you be satisfied with the pain of having to wait for something as crazy as your health goals?

You see, our attention span is now so limited that back in the year 2000 the average American’s attention span was 12 seconds. Now fast forward just 15 years to the age of the mobile revolution, the average American’s 2015 attention span is a mere 8 seconds. That’s scary!

No wonder we can’t stick to our healthy nutrition plans or even our workouts. Everything is too hard or takes to dang long, right? It’s all about instant gratification.

This is where I come in with a simple idea that does take a little bit of work on your part. This idea has been around for years. Some call it a Dream Board, I prefer the term VISION BOARD.

Some would create their boards with mansions, hot girls or guys, Lamborghinis, yachts, etc. We’ve all seen them. Those are, in my eyes, a waste of time! Here is the reason for my opinion.

With a dream board such as that, some of the items are so farfetched that the average person can’t really ever figure a way of attaining the items, therefore it’s merely just that, a dream board!

A Vision Board:
Put up your visions (GOALS) and make sure you put thought into them. Make sure they are realistic enough to achieve in a year. Pick only 3-5 goals. Don’t overwhelm yourself.

Start with the upper two thirds of your board and this is what you will do THIS YEAR.

Extend a line next to your vision and list 3-5 ways that you will attain the goal. Be specific, not vague in your description. For instance, if it’s a relationship you’re looking for know the age (35-45 yrs), personality traits (good relationship with mother & family), responsible, etc.

Then go to work on these important VISIONS immediately. The bottom 3rd of your board will be your solid, important, long-term goal once the others on top are achieved!

Now put your phone down and go to work!
