Who Are You? Part Six of Discover U

Get in touch with your authentic self as we continue with the Discover U series. Today you will develop a mission statement.

A mission statement describes your intention of how you will invest your energy. It is brief, focused, flexible, and feasible.

DIYPlanner has an excellent article about mission statements. Quintcareers also has a terrific series called the Five-Step Plan for Creating Personal Mission Statements. Check out What’s the Difference Between Mission and Vision? at Lifehack.org. Stephen R Covey is an authority on mission statements and I recommend going to the free Mission Statement Builder at his website to develop one.
