Why You Need a Personal Mission Statement

March 27, 2017
Why should you have a personal mission statement? Learn what it is, how to come up with one, and why I keep it in my daily planner.

what is a personal mission statement?

i first thought about a personal mission statement when i read stephen covey’s the 7 habits of highly effective people (<– affiliate link). covey explains that a mission statement helps you define “guidelines within which you can most happily express and fulfill yourself.”

how can a personal mission statement help you?

we are pushed and pulled in so many directions sometimes that we forget what we really want. or why we started something in the first place. we lose sight of our core values, priorities, and deal breakers. but writing these things down can give you clarity and guidance.

think about it like this. companies draft mission statements to provide purpose and direction for the business, right? so why can’t individuals benefit from doing the same?

so how do you start?

try franklincovey’s personal mission statement builder. you answer some questions about yourself, and the site plugs those answers into a template. then you can edit and revise the template as you like. i find this less overwhelming than staring at a blank word document and having to start from scratch!

Customize your personal mission statement and make an inspiring dashboard page for your planner.

and, being the #plannergirl that i am, i personalized my mission statement with patterned paper and stickers.

where should you keep your mission statement?

i hole punched mine and put it in my planner so i could see it regularly.
