Create Your Own A-HA Wall

If you’re like most Life Editors, you probably have brilliant sparks of wisdom that come to you at odd times.

You might be taking a shower and then suddenly know exactly how to organize the family’s vacation plans.

Or maybe you’re walking your dog and then are hit with a perfect plan for monetizing your business.

You might be feeling down but suddenly read a quote that makes you feel hopeful and excited about life again.

I like to call these bursts of clarity “A-HA moments” because they make you want to shout, “A-HA! It all makes sense now!”

What are your A-HA moments like? When do they typically pop into your head?

At the recent Life Editor Academy retreat, we kept track of our A-HAs for the entire weekend so we could use the positive energy as we mapped out our goals.

Today I’ve got a fun activity for you to try so that you can keep track of your A-HA moments and use them as continued motivation.

Here’s how you can create your own A-HA wall!

How to Make an A-HA Wall

  1. Get a large poster board, white board, or cork board and hang it on your wall.
  2. Gather up colorful markers, stickers, stencils, or other decorating materials.
  3. Whenever you have a brilliant idea or positive affirmation, write it on the wall.
  4. Consider making this a shared activity with your family, friends, or coworkers.
  5. Take time to review your wall every day to bask in the motivation!

We had a blast adding our A-HA moments to the wall during the retreat, and it helped us stay positive and playful while we were working.
