Do you have a mission statement?1 min read

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?
