Welcome to Cycle 7 of The 30 Goals Challenge: Make it Meaningful!

Goal: Visualize  your goals

Accomplish this goal: Don’t just list the goals you want to achieve this year. Instead, create a visual of your goals that inspires you to achieve them. Try sketchnoting your goals or creating a vision board of your goals. To create a vision board use a digital poster board creation tool, such as Eduncee, Canva, Tackk, SmoreBiteslides, Glogster, Educlipper, PinterestEasel.ly, Piktochart, or  Visme to visualize your goals. Add quotes, images, links to motivational songs, Youtube videos, and personal heroes who embody the goal. If you are part of the One Word movement, then create a sketchnote or vision board of your One Word.

In chapter 29, Goal: Manifest an Idea, of The 30 Goals Challenge for Teachers,  I encourage teachers to sketch out and visual their goals in order to achieve them. Mapping out your goals creatively, adding steps on how to achieve them, and adding inspiration through images and quotes helps you make a greater connection to your goals. You begin to have a heart, spirit, and mind connection to your goals.

You are invited to share your visual boards or sketchnotes with our 30 Goals community or share on Twitter with the #30GoalsEdu hashtag to inspire others!

New to The 30 Goals Challenge? Each year, teachers worldwide aim to accomplish 1 to 30 goals that transform their teaching. Join the movement by accomplishing any goal from any of the cycles then letting us know through a blog reflection or status update on our Facebook community or on Twitter,@30GoalsEdu . At our official site, 30Goals.com, find all the goals, participant reflections, badges, and get your copy of The 30 Goals for Teachers: Small Steps to Transform Your Classroom workbook. ​

    • Hi Michelle,
      I received your Goal and think it is great. I’ll be emailing you with a time to setup a Google Hangout to introduce it. I’m excited you will take part this year.
