How to Write a Mission Statement: Why You Need One & How to Get Started by Noreen Braman
Creating a personal mission statement not only helps you define your values and goals, but how those values and goals create you: the person, the employee, the family member, the world citizen. For examples, read the personal mission statements of successful, happy people you admire, such as Oprah and Richard Branson.
Your mission statement serves as the pathway to your vision. Use a notebook to answer the following:
- Who am I today?
- What am I doing today?
- What is my ultimate goal?
- Where is my mission taking me?
- Mission: To use my people skills to be everyone’s friend.
- Vision: No person should ever be without a friend.
Other questions to consider:
- What do I value above all else?
- What is my purpose?
- What are my current roles?
- What skills do I possess to get me to my vision?
Take your time with each question and write out your vision. Then try a mission statement draft, cutting it down until it is specific and true to your vision. Check in with your mission statement regularly to adjust if your vision has changed. This helps you know yourself better!
