[VIDEO] Minimal Vision Board in a Passion Planner

minimal vision board goal setting in the back pages of my passion planner

When I was making this voice-over, to this video, I was really mulling over the idea of stepping away from blogging. Not entirely, but switching it up a bit. Moving away from the written word and moving into visual storytelling.

Believe it or not, I find a lot of joy in video editing and filming in general, especially in things I'm inspired to film. Things I'm inspired to tell. I'm constantly seeing things in camera angles, and thinking, "Ooh, this would make a dope shot!" 

But then I have these business cards for my website, literally, and I'm like, "Fuck what am I going to do with them?" Originally when I planned this out, I didn't really have a pandemic to really think about. And it's not that I dislike blogging, it's kind of like I want to step away to take a breather. A few things that won't change, A Protagonist's Sky posts will be updated every month towards the end of it. Anytime I have a freebie, I will post that here also. Anytime I release a new video, I will try and make a post about it. 

But I really need to take a break from making posts every week and them having little to no substance. It's not that I dislike them, but I feel like there's a better way to tell those lessons. And I'm trying to figure that part out.

Don't get me wrong, I still am very passionate about eLearning, divergent education, divergent learners, gap years, non-traditional students, among the other things this website was to be about. This website was intended to help show proof that I'm highly in love with my field of study as I want to go to grad school, but I'm at a point in my life where I don't know if that's what I want to do anymore. Or if that's just who I am right now because the pandemic threw so many curveballs? 

Besides all the posts about college, I haven't tackled any of the other eLearning platforms, my experience with eLearning, what I'm hearing about how people eLearn right now, and why it's not the way it should be. There are so many different ways I wanted to delve into this topic, but all of them require long posts, that's 2500+ words or more. Those posts take time, research, etc. Those posts are of higher quality and harder to make on such a tight schedule. 

Therefore, I'm highly thinking about taking a break from blogging to catch a breather. To focus on other projects and be a bit more intentional of what I put out. It's almost been a year since I've started working on my website. It went live months after I started. And for a while, it was great because I had so many posts scheduled in advance. But now, it's not that I have a lack of ideas, I have a lack of passion to put out quantity and not quality work. I'm trying to rediscover myself, get back to myself, and to do that I think I need to not feel pressured to post, just to post. 

The video below is more of a goal/intention vision board rather than your traditional or digital vision board that I mentioned in this post here.

As always, I won't always be making planner-type videos, that's not where my heart is at. I'm a storyteller by nature. I'm really happy with what I've put out thus far, but I really think after maybe one more post it'll be best for me to step back for a bit and put my focus on the things that actually matter. 

Without further ado, my intentions in a visual setting:
