Creating your Personal Mission Statements

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? It is similar to company’s for providing directions, but it creates a set of things that is important to your life and you will stick to that direction when you are in crosspaths:

… A personal mission statement is a bit different from a company mission statement, but the fundamental principles are the same. 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. Or it enables us to chart a new course when we’re at a career crossroads. Steven Covey (in First Things First) refers to developing a mission statement as ‘connecting with your own unique purpose and the profound satisfaction that comes from fulfilling it.’ …

There are five steps that he mentioned on developing your own mission statement:

  • Step 1: Identify Past Successes.
  • Step 2: Identify Core Values.
  • Step 3: Identify Contributions.
  • Step 4: Identify Goals.
  • Step 5: Write Mission Statement.

Read the full article on details and examples on all 5 steps.
