How to Make a Goal Board

Like other people, I need something to help keep my motivation up. I have had a big problem with my depression keeping me from doing the things I want to do. So I decided, with the help of a friend, to make a goal board. You can do this however you want but I’m going to show you the one I made. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of my process, but its pretty easy to follow instructions.

So what I used for my board is a large white board, you can pick any size you choose, depending on the amount of goals you want to set each day. I have mine set up so I have 5 goals a day, 3 a week, and 3 a month. I also used multiple sharpies of different colors, dry erase markers, and a notepad (optional).

How I set mine up, is using a black sharpie and sectioning off days. I drew a line halfway through the board, long ways, then four lines long ways, cutting the last line at the middle line so that the bottom box is bigger than the rest. Check the picture, if that sounds confusing.

After you make your boxes, use the different color sharpies to label the boxes. I went online and found cute fonts to write the letters in. I only wrote the first letter, but you can write the full day if you like.

You can then use the sharpies to make little bullet points to check off.

I also used a planner to plan out my goals for the week and it has worked really well. I used the dry erase markers that have magnets on them so they could just hang on the board. The notepad I used was so I could write some positive things to boost myself up.

I hope this could help anyone who might need a little bit of a motivational boost. It has helped me a lot and it might help you.
