When starting a business, one of the first things you do is define the mission of your business in the form of, you guessed it, a mission statement. This is generally a paragraph or manifesto that defines the scope and vision and of what your business is all about so that over time a document exists that can guide and direct you through the ups and downs that come with running a business.
But when it comes to life, how often do we write a mission statement? Why don’t we create a document that can guide us to the mountain tops and direct us through the valleys?
For me, I am in the process of re-writing my business mission statement and for the first time write my life’s mission statement. In some ways, they are synonymous with each other, but in many ways there is beginning to be a clear delineation between Chris Martin and Chris Martin Studios. I for one begin to feel healthy as I separate and distinguish between the two.
As I write my plan, I will share it with the people that care to know, and in the meantime I leave you with a vision that I have for my life. To boldly tell the stories of people that are doing amazing and miraculous work. By doing this, I tell my story.
