But now there’s an easier way to stick to your goals.
You may have heard of vision boards – a tangible collage of pictures designed to help you clarify and focus on things you want or want to happen in your life.
But you probably haven’t heard of an audio vision board – an audible collage of songs designed to help you clarify and focus on the things you want or want to happen in your life.
Here’s how it works
First, decide on your goals, wants, resolutions. They can be very down-to-earth like drink more water or pie-in-the-sky (we prefer cookie-in-the-sky) like winning the lottery.
Second, choose a song to represent each goal/want/resolution. More on this in a minute.
Third, make a cd or playlist.
The beauty of the audio vision board is that you can take it with you anywhere and refocus on your goals.
In traffic? Listen to your audio vision board.
On a walk? Listen to your audio vision board.
At the gym? LISTEN TO YOUR AUDIO VISION BOARD.
It’s a musical mantra that allows you to refocus and rededicate yourself to your goals with each listen.

Goals should be SMART. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. For example, a regular goal could be "get rich." A SMART goal would be "Put $200 in savings each month for the entire year."
What are some realistic things you can accomplish in a year? Think through what you would like to see in a variety of "life buckets":
You get the idea. It's perfectly ok to set a goal to see your friends more often or to take more time for yourself.
