5 Steps To Help You Develop A Personal Mission Statement

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive.”

– Maya Angelou

I love this quote as it personifies the life that I’ve crafted for myself. Maya Angelou certainly lived a full, thriving life and I aspire to do the same. She’s such an inspiration. It’s all about creating the life you want to live, remaining persistent and trusting that everything will work out in due time.

That’s how you thrive! What does a thriving life look like for you?

If you aren’t sure, I’m here to help. I found a really cool article on Livecareer.com that outlines 5 steps toward developing a personal mission statement.

Check them out below!

Step 1: Identify Past Successes.

Spend some time identifying four or five examples where you have had personal success in recent years. These successes could be at work, in your community, at home, etc. Write them down. Try to identify whether there is a common theme — or themes — to these examples. Write them down.

Step 2: Identify Core Values.

Develop a list of attributes that you believe identify who you are and what your priorities are. The list can be as long as you need. Once your list is complete, see if you can narrow your values to five or six most important values. Finally, see if you can choose the one value that is most important to you.

Step 3: Identify Contributions.

Make a list of the ways you could make a difference. In an ideal situation, how could you contribute best to:
• the world in general
• your family
• your employer or future employers
• your friends
• your community •

Step 4: Identify Goals.

Spend some time thinking about your priorities in life and the goals you have for yourself. Make a list of your personal goals, perhaps in the short-term (up to three years) and the long-term (beyond three years).

Step 5: Write Mission Statement.

Based on the first four steps and a better understanding of yourself, begin writing your personal mission statement.

3 Tips For Managing A Busy Schedule

As adults, we wear many hats! We are parents, spouses, professionals, siblings, volunteers and more. Can it be overwhelming at times? Absolutely. However, it’s worth it.

If you need help managing your busy schedule, I’m here to help!

Below are three tips that I recommend implementing within your busy schedule:

1. Make a daily list of 3-5 things you want to get accomplished

Lists can be scary but not if you keep them simple. Instead of listing everything that you want to do, focus your efforts on the top 3-5 things you want to get done. That way, you can direct your full energy to giving your all to each task.

2. Work in time blocks

Schedule your tasks and guestimate how long it will take to complete each task. That way, you can factor in breaks for calls, food, water or bio breaks. All of which are extremely important!

3. Prioritize tasks

Prioritizing your tasks can help you figure out what to tackle first. If you are most productive in the morning, that’s the best time to get the most difficult tasks done. If you aren’t, then you might want to do a “menial” task that doesn’t require much effort.

How To Build A Vision List

Are you currently living the life you envisioned for yourself?
For me, the answer is yes but there are definitely other things that I’d like to see in my purpose driven life! In order to see those things come to pass, I have to work….and dream…and work…and dream!
​​​​​​​
So dust off that vision list (or your vision board) and get to work!
1.    Make a list of all of the important areas of your life
2.    Choose 1-2 goals for each area
3.    Detail a list of action items needed to attain each goal
4.    Assign due dates
5.    Check in and revise on a consistent (weekly, monthly, quarterly etc.) basis
Consistency is key! I believe in you and I know that you can do it!
