thepathMy life has been so busy for the last few years, getting married and having kids, trying to start graduate school while working full time, preaching once a month, not to mention wasting time blogging.  However, my personal life has suffered – I don’t exercise, I don’t get enough time alone, nor enough time alone with my spouse.  What to do?

Well, simplify, but how?  The best way I know is by writing a mission statement.  I did this about three years ago using the excellent book, The Path: Creating your mission statement for work and for life by Laurie Beth Jones.  I don’t have an updated mission statement, but I may start with my previous one:

To promote health and healing through practice, performance, and pedagogy.

What about you?  Do you have a personal mission statement?
