Last week, I ran across a notebook filled with goals I wrote about eight years ago. I have accomplished a few of them, some of them I’m not interested in accomplishing any more, and some I still hope to accomplish. It was so interesting to see how I’ve grown and changed since I wrote them.
I’ve been pondering how goals are so important in our lives (especially since every week I read my friend Crystal’s goals — and she’s always on my case to set blogging goals)!
But to set goals, you must first have a reason for them. So, I’ve been asking myself, “Why do you need goals in the first place?!!”
I think it all goes back to your mission — your purpose in life.
Because once you’ve established your mission, you can set goals to work towards achieving that mission.
So, this month I’m taking a 30-Day Challenge to write out my mission statement.
It has really been over the last year that I’ve begun to see the importance of a personal mission statement. Businesses and churches often have them, but I never really thought about writing one down specifically for me. I’m not saying I’ve just been drifting aimlessly through life (I have a pretty good idea of my mission in my mind). I’ve just never taken the time to really focus and write one out!
I hope you’ll join me over the next few weeks. I’ll be sharing some posts and printables with questions and ideas to get you started on writing your own mission statement.
If you already have a mission statement, I’d love for you to share. Feel free to leave them in the comments below!
