Mission Statement

[Photo: pastoral promise by zachstern]

"The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value."
-Stephen R. Covey

Most companies draft a mission statement for the purpose of describing the institutions' reason(s) for existence. The mission statements of successful companies incorporate specific and measurable goals and describe the manner in which the companies wish to be viewed by external and internal parties. Successful companies ensure that their priorities, decisions and actions mirror the values set forth in their mission statements and do not overextend their resources by pursuing goals not part of their original visions.

This concept can be successfully applied not just to our places of work, but to our personal lives as well. Developing a personal mission statement provides us the opportunity to reflect on what our goals, values and priorities are. Once completed, the statement can serve as a measure to help ensure that the daily decisions you make reflect the values and image you wish to project.

Take a moment to reflect on what is important to you and what the major components of your mission statement would be.

If you had to write a one sentence mission statement for your life, what would it be?

To have a mission statement is a really good idea. I also think that this mission statement should be reviewed constantly during our lives because we should be ever developing; as we achieve our goals new ones would become evident.
One thing that I would include in my mission statement today is to do things that would make me happy and not someone else happy.

One sentance? I dunno, I have a vision for myself, and set goals, but it takes more than 1 sentance I'm afraid

Check it out on my Resume

bdetchevery: I agree that one sentence is an insufficent length for a complete personal mission statement. However, my goal was to prompt others to start thinking about the subject, simply. Thanks for sharing!

I'm a bigger fan of umbrella statements than mission statements, but I appreciate the prompting...

Above all be charming and not tedious.

Seize those opportunities before they disappear!

My mission statement is as follows:

To provide personal happiness, peace, contentment, help, guidance, growth, and financial well-being, to myself and others who seek the same while having successful relationships with those close to me in my life.

recently finished a mission statement for my occupation as a Church DBM. it already has affected how i think about projects and challenges. http://groups.google.com/group/ChMS/msg/e26e493d35d49718

Wonderful post to contemplate. I am so glad I clicked on over from Rob's.

Thank you for asking and for opening to contributions.

Mine is pretty simple,

May I Shine Brightly with a Humble Heart in the Truth of Illumination and Love through Giving, Compassion, Kindness, and Sincerity.

Serenity: Thanks for clicking over, glad you stopped by as well! Thank you for sharing your own mission statement, seems like you have put much thought into the subject matter. Hope to hear from you again. Going to click on over to your site...

to continue that spool of thread I hitched on this side (at the point of birth) to the next post and make the thread as colorful and clean, without tangle or frayed edges till that time.
