The motivational speaker Robert Kiyosaki mentioned that on day one of military school you must memorize the mission of the Merchant Marine Academy. The mission is “to educate and graduate licensed merchant mariners and leaders of exemplary character who will serve America's marine transportation and defense needs in peace and war." I like that! Well I don’t intend to write a mission for you, but I surely want to help you to get one.
A personal mission statement provides clarity and gives you a sense of purpose. It defines who you are and how you will live. When creating a new company, or trying to change the culture of an existing company, company leaders will create a mission statement that speaks to what they want the goals and values of the company to be. This is a crucial step. Without it, the company cannot effectively move forward because there is not agreement on where it is going. It’s hard to get somewhere if you don’t know where you’re going.
