What’s your mission?
Everything we build starts with a foundation. Regardless or whether you are building is abstract or concrete, you have to start with a foundation; and its successor completion depends on how well you build that foundation.
If you have a business or just starting to build one, you need to start with the core: your vision and mission for your company.
You start with your mission. When you set your mission, it should not be about the products or services you provide; it should be about you: who you are and what your goals are. Before you start your business, you must have a mission in mind, since it guides you in making all your business decisions.
As much as possible, it should be your mission, and not anybody elses. However, that is not always the case. Businesswomen can sometimes get busy with a consultant who is creating a business mission for them.
Although it is convenient, there’s no one else better to craft your mission than YOU. The mission should match you. It should move you, and touch you. It should act as a force to propel you, even more, to work hard for your business.
Furthermore, your mission should also attract and move your employees. Otherwise, they’re not a good fit for your company.
Your core values should reflect on your mission. It should be an integral part of knowing what your mission is. For example, if one of your core values is your family, then you’re ignoring yourself, you’re neglecting yourself, then you’ll be in conflict. It’s just a matter of time before guilt starts to sink in. When one of your core values is to be busy and you are busy with other people, then you are also neglecting a part of yourself. The point is your core values should be in sync with your mission and they should be hand-in-hand in building a good foundation for your business or company.
