Magazine Pictures and Glue Sticks Can Show the Future
This past Saturday I was once again blown away by the ingenious creativity of friends and clients who join me and my partner in creative crime, Elizabeth Cramer, for our 3rd Vision Board Brunch.
Below I share the results of the future-seeking collages, I wanted to share a Ted Talk by Patti Dobrowolski that I think illuminates why this vision board process can pave the way for a brighter future (and why it's so much fun).
With well-honed comic skills, Dobrowolski shares an example that demonstrates the neurological science behind activities like sketching pictures. She explains how drawing and creative engagement draws on the right side of our brain and can shore up our internal resources to fight the overly critical tendencies of our logical left brains.
While it may seem like ethereal crafting nonsense, vision boarding actually can move you towards your goals and objectives since it triggers in our brains a determination to bring these activities to fruition. I like to think of it as a "middle finger" to the left brain's tendency to remain content with the status quo.
My favorite part of the Vision Board Brunch is when everyone stands up and generously shares the "vision" they are attempting to manifest. Take a minute to peruse the vision boards created last Saturday. If you would like to come to a future Vision Board event, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
