Mission, Vision & Value Statements

Queuing the Future – Part 5 & Conclusion

MOTTO

Again, a Motto is a personal theme and/or mantra. It is typically three or four values and/or a simple statement.

Value Statements

A Value Statement is just that. A Statement of what you value! You’ve already come up with a list of values for the Vision Statement, double it. If you’re stuck on this one, go back and do the exercise from Positive Affirmations – Core Values on February 29, 2012.  Once you have a list of at least two-dozen values, traits or characteristics you hold, list at least two-dozen […]

Vision Statement

A Vision Statement unlike the Mission Statement does not focus on multiple steps. It is a way to set specific goals, that you “Know & Believe” are obtainable by set dates. Examples: By January 31, 2010 I will have complete my manuscript on How to Ride a Bike Safely Through Yellowstone National Park: Within 10 years I will be debt free with 15 months worth of emergency funds saved; I will walk out onto the stage of the Oprah show wearing a little black dress, holding […]

Personal Mission Statement – Continued

Now that you have your list of 25 – 50 things you do well, you’ve completed the hardest part of your mission statement.  You’ve come up with what you do.  Now all that’s left is what you are and what you want to be when you grow up.  I know!  Some of us don’t want to grow up and others cannot believe they have to.  And still too many of us are so caught up in day to day living we forget we […]

Personal Mission Statement

In Queuing the Future – Part 1, we talked about the ways to come up with a family mission statement.  A personal one is a little harder for most.  It takes quite a bit on introspection and honesty with oneself.  I am going to put this on hold for a day.  Before we can really get into writing your personal mission statement you must do a challenge you’ve been challenged to before.

Write a list of 25 -50 things you do well.  Things that you can be […]

Family Mission Statements

family - mission statement

To write a mission statement for your family it is vital that each person get involved.  Each family member should come up with at least 10 – I prefer 20, 1 – 3 word sentences that describe who you are, what you do and who/what you want to be.  Tight knitted, close, determined, good neighbors, helpful, loving, successful, religious, etc…

Once these words or phrases have been gathered you will set goals around these phrases.  Pick 3 – 6 large/major goals and list at least 6 […]

Queuing the Future! – Mission, Vision, Value Statements Introduced

Mission, Vision & Value Statements. – What are they?

For the next little bit we will discuss the difference between the three of these in greater detail.  The simplest way for me to remember the difference is as follows;

Mission: Where I am and want others to think of me.

Vision: Where I want to be at a specific time.

Values: Affirmation of what I believe.

Bonus:

Motto: Your theme to include your values.  A mantra you live by.

In Computer Science we refer to Queuing as a sequence of stored data or programs awaiting processing.

In life if we store the right information when the time comes to process it we will have a better and more predictable outcome.

In other words, we control our futures with the information we store and process now.
