Now, it's your turn. I'm going to show you how to use Milanote, which is a great, great resource to use if you want to make a digital mood board online. Let's get into it. All right, everybody. Welcome to the Milanote demo. So quickly, we're going to go right to Milanote from Google. We're going to go right in there. I think I'm already logged in. No. Okay, so if you haven't already created an account with Milanote, go ahead and do that by clicking on "sign up for free." It's pretty intuitive, pretty easy to do. I already have one.
So I'm just going to click "login" and this is what you're going to see after you've actually created your account. So right here, we have sort of like the main screen. Let's quickly go into "hobbies." Alright. So as you can see, I have a couple of different images. I have some comments, I've left some to-dos here. Wait here, I want to zoom in right here. I have a to-do list that I've put in. I've put in some comments. I have links to outside websites.
I also have a little bit of some reactions here in the bottom left. This Milanote is really, really fun. And there are just a couple of different little features here on the left-hand side that I'm about to show you. So let me just go back to the home screen and when you're starting out, I'm going to take you through the whole entire process. So you're basically going to drag a board into here into your main screen. And then, let's say I want to make a board about inspiration. Okay.
So I'm going to click into this and right here in the bottom right, we're going to see "choose a template." "Inspiration board" is definitely the main one. So you get to see what it looks like. I really like this. You have "project plan," which is more strategic. You also have "moodboard" here, you could do that. I sort of "inspiration board" a little bit more.
So either choose "inspiration board" or "moodboard," and I'm going to use this template. And basically, what's going to happen is I can plug in my images from my computer into here. I can download images and plug them in directly. So I've already made sort of like an inspiration mood board already. So I'm just going to show you a little bit of what this looks like here for me specifically.
We're going to really quickly zoom in and I'm going to show you a few of these features on the left-hand side. You can use these however you want to. My mood boards are very, sort of, simple and right to the point. But if you want to add a little bit of flair, you definitely can do that. So I going to drag in a note right here, maybe even right here. "Miki Agrawal is one of my idols in life." Right?
And then I'm going to hit a line here, bring it over here. I'm going to make this color green and I'm going to quickly drag it here. Okay, you can do some of that. You can sort of like annotate your draft here. You can also bring in a link and you can enter in a URL. So let's go adventurouskate.com and then it will auto-populate a link for you.
So you can actually link out to things. See, that's pretty good, right? Alright. And you can also do some to-do lists. So I'm going to drag in a to-do list and you can add in anything you want. So you could say, "Learn Jiu-Jitsu," if I could spell correctly and then, "Go to Glacier National Park," if I could spell that correctly as well. And you can also leave comments.
So you can go, I could leave this right here or you could leave it on top of the image and it'd be like "Conor McGregor is one of my favorite athletes," something like that. You could also add image. So you just press click, add image and you could add in images from Unsplash or you could add in images from your own computer. You could go upload an image and basically add in anything you want. So I'll go ahead and I'll do that one. And then I will just click it and drag it right here.
If I want to make the picture bigger, I can just click here on the bottom right and click out like that. Okay. Now, if you want to see the whole thing because it's sort of like this weird zoom in and zoom out thing. If you want to see the whole thing, you just press here and then zoom out or zoom in depending on what you want. And this is how you would add a reaction. So you'd actually click on the image, you press "add reaction." It's up to you however you want, whatever you want to add to it. It's fine.
You could just do some more flair things like that. You can press caption, you can add a caption to your images. You can make it bold. You can do any formatting things right here. But those are really just for anything that you want to add with words into your mood board. But the most important thing is to use a template because it's hard to design your mood board by yourself. And that's really all the features that you need to know about when you're constructing your own mood board on Milanote.
My advice to you would be to make it simple. If you enjoy design, go crazy with all of the ways that you can customize your mood board, if you want to. But for me personally, all I needed to do was plug in pictures. So if you want to actually export this and print it out or something, you just come up here to "export" and you can export the current board layout in either PDF or PNG.
And if you want to go back and see all of your boards, just hit "home" and you can see all of your boards in one place. I hope that helps. And I hope you enjoy Milanote as much as I did. Armed. With my demo, my examples, and your own research that you've already done. I'm sure that you're going to be able to come up with some amazing mood boards for yourself that can really give you some clarity.
This step is absolutely crucial moving forward. Now, we can see our goals, we can touch them, we can feel them, we can, you know, interact with them. That's very, very important. We can see our goals. That's one of our senses, right? Sight. We can see what we want. I want to help you continue to bring your ideas into reality throughout this whole course. Now, we're going to talk about goal setting.
This is a really, really fun lesson coming up. And I think that you're going to really push yourself in this next lesson. So see you there. Bye-bye.
