First, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to the kind folks who helped me get unstuck the past two paper delivery days. Thanks to them, I was back on my way in a timely manner and was able to continue my deliveries.
The latest topic of discussion in my management course is on mission statements and goals. For those of you who think those two terms are interchangeable...they’re not.
Mission Statements are short, easily remembered statements of where you are striving to go. They do not reflect where you are now, but your aim for the future. They are for an indefinite time period and can be modified.
Goals, on the other hand, are definite, time related and are actions that are meant to propel you further along the road towards meeting the lofty aim of your mission statement.
Too many people don’t want to adopt a quality mission statement because they can’t see past where they are right now. Don’t be one of those in a rut. Change! Grow! Move!
