PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT

According to educator and author Stephen Covey, your mission statement is about 'defining the personal, moral and ethical guidelines within which you can most happily fulfill yourself." It provides focus and clarity, and defines your purpose.

Here are some easy steps towards creating your own powerful personal mission statement:

1. What do you want to do? Take five minutes to think about why you do what you do. How did you become a performer? How do you feel when your work goes well? Jot down a list of ideas.

2. What are your core values? Make a list of words and phrases that communicate your feelings about your work and your personal values. This can be as long as you want!

3. Applying your core values. In an ideal situation, how can you contribute to: the world, your community, your family and friends, ensembles, groups, or organizations you might be part of? Are themes emerging?

4. Finding patterns. This one can take longer and will develop over time. In an ideal world, for example, what kind of performances would you like to create? What other short- or long-term goals do you have? Goals can be tied to a hobby, your personal life, your artistic life. Write these down.

5. Draft your mission statement. Bring together the themes you've identified.

Here is an example from Franklin Covey's Get Inspired page:
I live to serve my talents as a communicator, artist, and independent businesswoman. I create balance in work, play, and community. I inspire those I interact with.
