DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT?

 

Laurie Beth Jones is a business consultant, author and motivational speaker who believes one's success is tied to having and living out a purpose statement. In her book

The Path she states, "Having a clearly defined reason for being is the beginning of fulfillment."  Jones suggests a personal statement should be short, understandable by a child and reciteable under great duress.  Simply put, it shouldn't be wordy or contain the words juxtapose or existential.  As Rotarians, professionals and people we should have a personal purpose statement that we seek to live into each day. If we don't have one it's a worthy goal.
