For some time, my business mentor has been telling me I need to have my goals posted in a visible location so that I can see them frequently. She suggested that even if I placed sticky notes on the bathroom mirror, at least it would be something to remind me throughout the day.
However, I decided to do something a little more creative than that. I wanted something simple (and cheap!) that I would want to look at. You know, something that would be some motivational eye candy for me. Being the tightwad that I am, I kept putting it off because every idea I came up with involved spending money.
One day, I looked around the house and found an old, unused, brightly colored posterboard. I also found a stack of vintage Current wrapping paper that I had been saving for who-knows-what. Finally I found a sturdy piece of cardboard to serve as the perfect surface on which to tape my pretty paper.
After that, it was just a matter of using packing tape to stick it all together. I printed out a label for it, and voila! I have something simple and attractive on which to place my sticky notes.

I love the simplicity of this because I can easily pull sticky notes off once I've completed the various goals and can easily add more or change current ones when I need to.
What are your ideas for reminding you to stay focused on your goals? Do you have a more creative method? I would love to hear it!
