Last week, we worked on (or started, anyway) our Family Mission Statements. This week, we are going to talk about PERSONAL Mission Statements. I had you do a family mission statement first because if your family was going to be flexible and travel and you wanted to start college and go get your doctorate…well, the two don’t mesh well.
I’m also going to keep this one short because I got long winded last week and you may still be working on the Family Mission statement. I do have breaks built in quite regularly so no fears about “falling behind.” :).
Why have one?
Having a personal mission statement help to direct your path and decide on opportunities that come your way. If you have read 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, it’s habit 2: Begin with the end in mind.
How do I make one?
I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here. The best resource I have ever seen is from Inspire to Action. Just subscribe to their RSS and there will be a link to a Mission Statements for Moms, a free ebook. TOTALLY worth it.
Do you have one?
Yep, I wrote it before kids and I think it pretty much says it all.
To make a warm & happy home & family.
To help family, friends & neighbors.
To stay healthy & fit.
To read. To learn. To travel.
To have integrity in all that I do.
To be patient. To be faithful. To set an example.
