Personal Mission Statement

What did you do this bank holiday?

Me, I sat down and redrafted my Personal Mission Statement.

Why? because this document helps me have an central core set of values to which I look to for assistance in making decisions.

Example: I have the opportunity to take up a new job. But should I take it?

So I turn to my personal mission statement and see if what this new job offers is in line with what I have declared in my Personal Mission Statement. If i find aspects of the job which conflict with my Personal Mission Statement I can seek clarity from the employer, and if they still remain in conflict I can reject the job.

But be content in knowing I have stayed true to my personal values and the direction I wish my life to head towards.

I found this web tool very helpful - http://www.franklincovey.co.uk/msb/
