Start everything with the end in mind. This is one of the steps from the book "7 habits of highly effective people" (a must read for everyone!!) Have a look here. Which got me onto thinking. What is your purpose on earth? What exactly do you want to leave? Most people want to Live, Love, Learn and Leave a Legacy. What legacy do you want to leave?
I was thinking about myself today, and realised I have forgotten to keep reminding myself of the things that make me, well…me. What is my end? How do I want to feel when I am on my death bed? What is my purpose? This is something I need to continue to remind myself everyday, as like most people I get lost sometimes in the hum-drum of day-to-day, and the stress of making decisions for the short term. BUT are these decisions sitting well with my purposes? What is my mission statement??
So I decided tonight I need to figure out just that. My mission statement and write it clearly to view DAILY. So stay tuned, as it is a work in progress. But something I learnt today was that you need to behave and live by your mission statement as though it will happen - even if over time it may change.
What end do you have in mind? What is important to you?
…Until Tomorrow xox
