“How many of you have a personal mission statement?” That’s the question I asked approximately 30 grad students Tuesday evening. Not surprisingly only three hands went up. Here were grown ups pursuing a master’s degree and building a career, but to what end?
I can’t be hard on them though. There was a time when I thought a person having a mission statement was the most ridiculous thing, but not anymore.
Just like in business, a mission statement keeps you focused, helps you make decisions, and moves you in the right direction for accomplishing great things.
What do you want your life to say about you?
