Mission possible: Defining task that will not self destruct
Mission: “The task, together with the purpose, that clearly indicates the action to be taken, and the reason therefore,” as defined by the dictionary.
In other words, a personal mission statement encompasses passion and purpose. It defines your core principles and ideals for life. A personal mission statement takes time to develop–weeks, months, sometimes years.
Mission to some, is the same as purpose; however, there are differences. The mission is created with the end in mind–the big picture. Whereas purpose is our reason for being on the mission. Purpose can change throughout the journey of life. Yet, with both together, they are like peas in a pod–producing healthy fare for life sustenance.
A personal mission statement can be crafted in many ways. For example, your mission statement may contain a couple of paragraphs, a few lines or be a list. Check out this template that can help you get started writing yours.
