Time Management & Vision Boards for Outdoor Classrooms
This past month I have been busy planning the upcoming 2018 year for outdoor-classrooms.com. It has been especially exciting because I have been learning new methods for time management, vision boards and how these techniques can make all the difference when working in an Outdoor Classroom.
#1: My 2018 Sticky Note Project Plan
My Sticky Note Project Plan was inspired by Jennifer Lee. Mapping out every month with upcoming projects, e-courses, on-site workshops and retreats have been exhilarating. I am a creative and having a huge calendar on my wall in my studio gives me a creative, visual map with some directions for 2018. Get ready, I am already immersing myself in a number of NEW projects and can’t wait to share them with you. You can find these big calendars at Paper Source.
The big calendar also offers Natural Teachers a great opportunity to think about garden planning and what needs to be done in the Outdoor Classrooms each month. I will keep you posted on how this project develops in the coming months.
#2: My 2018 Vision Board
Every year or so I also create a vision board. What is a vision board? A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. A vision board is any sort of board, book, box, or anything on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. I cut out pictures and words from magazines. Sometimes I write my own words, sometimes I don’t. There are no right or wrong ways of doing this exercise. Creating a vision board is simply an exercise to create visual inspiration that can manifest your goals.
This exercise also offers Natural Teachers a creative, visual option for Designing Outdoor Classrooms. Stay tuned. This may have to be my next project!
