Writing Your Mission Statement

 
Writing a mission statement is one of the most important things you will ever do. Take a special week during which you will set aside an hour or so of time each day to think about your life, and decide what you want to accomplish during your lifetime. What do you want the most out of life? What kind of person do you want to become? What kind of experiences do you want to have? What contributions do you want to make?

To start, write 7 to 10 key words or phrases that reflect what you want. Then, after each key word or phrase, write a personal definition.
