At QuintCareers, Randall S. Hansen has written an article on creating Personal Mission Statement. Personal? you asked. What are the differences between a personal and a company mission statment?

Writing a personal mission statement offers the opportunity to establish what’s important and perhaps make a decision to stick to it before we even start a career.
