  • Big dreams take more than just your imagination to achieve. But when you write them down and visualize them, you’re on your way to making them a reality. In fact, when you write something down, you’re more likely to accomplish it. By using tools from Post-it® Brand to make a goal board, you can keep your dreams right in front of you and stay inspired every single day. Here’s how to do it.

  • 1. Explore your goals

    The first step of achieving your goals is to write them down. Using a Post-it® Super Sticky Lined Note 4 in. x 4 in., make a comprehensive list of what you want to achieve. The lines will make sure your list stays neat, so you can see everything you want to achieve clearly.

Try covering a bulletin board with Post-it® Super Sticky Dry Erase Surface — you can cut it to any size board you want, and it’ll stick to just about any smooth surface. Or just use a sheet of cardboard, a piece of wall, or anything else you like.

  • 3. Pick out your most important goals

    Write out each of your most important goals on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note 3 in. x 3 in. and devote one section of your board to each of them. Since you can stick and restick them, try arranging them in different ways, whether it’s by easiest to hardest, or short-term to long-term.
