January: "Mission Possible"
Write a personal mission statement.
The “Mission Possible” Mini Challenge invites you to write a personal mission statement. This is much more than a catchy slogan. A mission statement will clearly express what drives you and what is important to you. It will help you define your direction and purpose in life. It will be the foundation for your goals and will help you evaluate whether or not you are living true to your self-defined purpose. Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, wrote that a mission statement is “like a personal constitution, that basis of making major, life-directing decision, the basis for making daily decisions.”
Set aside some time to think about what you’d like your mission statement to be. Write your ideas on paper or on a private online journal.
- What are you passionate about?
- What brings you joy?
- What are you naturally good at?
- What do you stand for?
- Which ethics and values are important to you?
- How would you like to influence others?
Contemplate these answers as you create a purposeful statement that captures the essence of who you are. Don’t worry about making it perfect. Start with a rough draft and you can change it over time.
After you've finished this month's Mini Challenge mark the challenge as complete to be eligible for a prize drawing at the end of the year! You can earn one entry per month.
