This is the third (and last) prompt in a series of journaling prompts dealing with New Year’s resolutions.

By now we have covered the traditional way of forming new years resolutions and the clairvoyant and more inspirational way of going about it.

This week’s journaling prompt suggests a third method of laying down your new years resolutions, which is the Action Way.

The action way is very effective for a more visual person (like myself) who needs to actually see a picture that stands behind a word in order to get to the bottom of it. This method is also fantastic for anyone who finds it difficult to follow a strictly formed resolution (like myself…) as it yields more amorphous goals, which can be interpreted and changed as life changes through time, but still provide general guidance.

The principle of the action way is to compile a list of “words to live by“, which is a short list of single action words that you would like to do more of in the coming year. The next step is to pick a corresponding picture for each action word and make a vision board – other digitally or on a hard-copy – of your action words and corresponding photos.

I have used Flickr’s mosaic tool to make a mosaic out of my corresponding photos and then downloaded it to my computer and added my action words to each picture with Picasa 3. I printed the edited image with a laser jet printer, cut out each individual image and made a vision board, using Decoupage.

This is my vision board for the year 2009:

New Year's resolutions - the action way - my vision board
