A personal mission statement based on correct principles becomes the same kind of standard for an individual. It becomes a personal constitution, the basis for making major, life-directing decisions, the basis for making daily decisions in the midst of the circumstances and emotions that affect our lives. It empowers individuals with the same timeless strength in the midst of change. . It focuses on what you want to be (character) and to do (contributions and achievements) and on the values or principles upon which being and doing are based. – Stephen R. Covey
The personal mission statement represents the combination of values and principles that lay the foundation for the personal culture code. The personal culture code dissects each value and principle while the personal mission statement combines those values and principles into a memorable, digestible reference. As the personal culture code grows, the personal mission statement changes to reflect that growth.
Personal Mission Statement
Professional: Be sincere yet decisive. Plan tomorrow’s work today. Hustle while you wait.
Personal: Never compromise with honesty. Always remember where you came from.
Friend: You are the company you keep.
