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. Livecareer.com also has 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.
