For those of us that love journaling, pictures, paper AND we enjoy setting and achieving goals, then goalscrapping is the way to go. Goalscrapping came about after wanting to scrapbook, but since I'm in a goal minded phase, I didn't feel that I had enough time for both. Instead of scrapbooking about past events, I thought I would scrapbook my goals that way I can have all the creative fun, but at the same time work on my goals. I'm sure I will scrapbook in the future, but for now, this is calling my name. For creative people, we need to process, reflect, make, think and discover and so I feel that goals setting and progress monitoring in this way is a great match for us.
Goalscrapping has 2 parts:
Goal Envisioning (Goal Setting): This part will show the images, words, sketches, and information that represent your goals. It acts as a reference for yourself and a reminder of your goals. We are using the tactile sense as we develop our goals here. Information can also be important in achieving goals, so this section will contain that.
Goal Documenting (Goal Achieving): This part will document the progress of your goals. What does working on your goals look like on a daily or weekly basis? What are the results? Have all the creative fun here, showing all the progress of your goals. Cut, paste, write, draw, handletter, there are endless possibilities.
I've made a video where I talk more about the process, you can watch below. For the next two weeks, I will be vlogging in my studio a bit everyday as I goalscrap and will edit the clips together to make two videos that I will post the next four Sundays to give a glimpse into my own goals which are preventative health/fitness and mindfulness/meditation. I'll also be posting blog posts with pictures, but more than anything, I'd like to see your goalscrapping...if you use #goalscrapping on Instagram I will be able to see how you are doing it!
Today is the best time to do what we are called to do and goal setting is the first step, so let's get goalscrapping my creative friends!
