Stephen Covey’s book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” will soon be celebrating the 30th anniversary of its release, and his son Sean Covey is introducing six new techniques that enhance the original seven habits to help you define your Personal Mission Statement.
Let’s discuss the first one of Covey’s habits: the Personal Mission Statement!
Fortunately, we know the value of having a business plan, business goals, and business mission statement but how many of us have a “PMS”? Covey suggests planning your WEEK to identify your highest priorities. Covey states, “When you combine your personal mission and your highest priorities, the things you do each day will be aligned to what matters most to you.”
To continue your journey to be more productive with your highest priorities in mind, a personal mission statement can be your guide to ensure focus, growth, and accountability. If you haven’t already, now is a good time to craft your own PMS. It’s not as hard as you might think, and there are plenty of references for help on the web.
How do you craft your own Personal Mission Statement?
Determine what your priorities are and write them down in a way so that people never have to ask about your Personal Mission Statement. Have they changed since COVID-19? How will you incorporate those priorities into what matters most to you? Do you want to scale your business, create a new one, or change the way you spend your personal time?
Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing these techniques. The PMS is the foundation of your journey into what matters most to you.
