A personal mission statement can be defined as a written statement that explains what your purpose is, whether in a professional environment or in a personal perspective, but it should explain what your goal is to achieve for a long period of time. There are a few questions that should be answered when creating a purposeful mission statement:
- What is it that you want to do?
- Why do you want to do it?
- How will you do it?
- Who will you do it for?
Answering these questions specifically, will allow you to avoid a vague personal mission statement that doesn’t represent who you truly want to become and invest your energy and time on.
