Whether you’re a mom, a blogger, a wife, or all or none of the above, you can ditch that overloaded to-do list and follow these 3 steps to a personal mission statement.
I’m taking a short blogging break to soak up time with my sweet newborn baby. Things won’t be silent around here, though; I’ve got some awesome bloggers lined up to step in and share some great content. Today, Angela from Setting My Intention is here talking about creating a personal mission statement.
If you’re anything like me, you like to write to-do lists – and even better, you like to cross off items on your to-do list. It’s satisfying knowing that you’ve completed a number of items that needed to get done. If you’re a mom, a wife, a business owner, or any combination of these and other roles, the list could go on and on and on.
Recently though, I’ve had a change of heart in terms of what should be on my to-do list. I’ve taken a step back to write down what my highest priorities are in this current season of life. Taking the time to thoughtfully write these priorities down has changed my lists and how I use my time. This step by step guide on goal planning with intention and purpose has helped me create a personal mission statement for the first time.
3 Steps to a Personal Mission Statement
Step 1: Write down all of your current roles. Now pick the top 5.
My priorities in this current season are:
- My husband and our marriage
- My Children
I value other things, of course, like friendships, service, and maintaining my home, but they aren’t the most important priorities during this current season.
This exercise helped me realize that my priorities are currently skewed. Based on how I currently spend my time, blogging and building up my business are at the top of my priority list instead of my most important relationships.
- Take a minute to write down what your main roles are.
- List them in order of priority.
- What are you top 3-5?
