My Bread and Butter List:
Here Where The Real Work Starts:
Now analyze your bread and butter list that you just made, find out if there is a recurring theme. Maybe, you will find that you like teaching small children how to create art or you like to eat and discuss music with friends. Whatever it is, your goal is to identify the central theme of the things you that you are passionate about. Now take that central theme and try to put it in a short and precise statement. Now you have created your personal ‘Mission Statement’!
A personal mission statement is essential to creating a framework for what you want to do. It helps you to define your why and keep you focused. This statement can sometimes take hours to create because you are trying to establish who you are as a person. A mission statement is the highest level of introspection that integrates who you are as an individual with your purpose and goals. This statement will make your life focused and will simply and decision-making process. Lastly, your mission statement will hold you accountable for your decisions, your actions, and your life.
Happy Writing! You will love me when you finish!
