The Benefits of Writing
Personal Mission Statement
Most people live their entire life without writing a personal mission statement.
And the large majority of them never reach their ideal career success.
Today many people have learned the value of building a mission statement.
Unfortunately, because their mission statements may lack key personal qualities,
a specific and measurable goal, or a concrete deadline, they may have inadvertently
pushed themselves further away from their goals.

When writing a Mission Statement you should:
Perhaps the best example of a public Mission Statement was made back in
1960, when John F. Kennedy, referring to the U.S. space program, said that we would
put a man on the moon by the end of the decade — a clear goal with a specific
timeline for its achievement. And, despite enormous challenges, by mid-1969,
Neil Armstrong had taken that "one large step for mankind."
- draft a hand-written or typed out paragraph
- describe your best characteristics and how you express them
- have specific, measurable outcomes
- have a deadline -- for example, December 31st.

Company Mission Statement or a Personal Mission Statement. We at Nightingale-Conant

Q: Why is it so important to have a Personal Mission Statement?
A: The highest achievers in any field view themselves as
self-employed. They have the attitude that they run their own business, even
if they are affiliated with a major corporation. And so they develop a sense
of “mission” about their career, taking a proactive approach to create
the results they want. And their Mission Statement guides them.
This is in contrast with "average" people, who view themselves as employees
and react to the ups and downs of the economy. Top producers take charge.
They take full responsibility for fulfilling their mission, regardless of market
conditions. They realize that they can't wait until external factors, like
the marketplace, get better ... but that THEY must get better if they intend to
achieve their goals.
Which group do you want to be in -- the top 3% of achievers or the 97% of "average"
people? Your Personal Mission Statement and clearly defined goals with timelines
attached are the difference. Start now by creating your
Mission Statement online using Nightingale.com's
free online Build My Mission Statement process.
Q: What are some simple steps to goal setting after creating
a Mission Statement?
A: You must base your goals upon your Mission Statement.
If you've created your Mission Statement according to the process above, you'll
now have "big" goals to achieve by one year from today. From there,
you'll need to break them down into quarterly, monthly and even weekly goals.
Stephen Covey has a great quote
in his book, 7 Habits
of Highly Effective People. In it, he says: "If you don't set
your goals based upon your Mission Statement, you may be climbing the ladder of
success only to realize, when you get to the top, you're on the WRONG BUILDING."
Now, start today, by creating your Personal Mission Statement and set your quarterly,
monthly, and weekly goals accordingly.
