An Excerpt from Harvard Business Review blog post by Dan Pallotta: Do You Have a Mission Statement, or Are You on a Mission?
My mission is to help people transform the way they participate in life. I work with clients to identify what they are committed to, so that they may create more joy, gratitude and purpose to their being.
Your mission statement defines what you stand for, why you exist. It should be clear, simple, brief, outcome-driven and optimistic. Consider this your life journey.
Your vision statement defines the end goal of what you hope to achieve. It should
be aspirational, brief, optimistic, and is a nod to your future. Consider this your final destination. When you reflect upon your life, this is what you will have accomplished.
