When creating goals make sure you break them down into manageable pieces, this way with each small piece you finish you can feel like you are moving forward.
A vision board can be a great tool to see your SMART goals daily and remind yourself what you want to achieve. This does not mean you put it on your wall and think happy thoughts for it to happen, that will not work. What it does mean is you have a reminder of your goal, and the steps (SMART goal actionable steps) to achieve that goal.
It does not have to be anything fancy, it can be as simple as glue, scissors, magazines and poster board. Seeing your goals in a visual way can help remind you of your goals.
This can also be a great thing to do with roommates to bond and help each other succeed.
