Personal Mission Statement

Personal Mission Statement

I am on this earth to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I will bring joy, loyalty, and friendship to those who know me. I aspire to be worthy of the respect and admiration of my friends, family, and community. I will use my skills and knowledge to improve the quality of life as we know it today.


  • Concern for others
  • Authenticity
  • Continuous improvement
  • Fun
  • Quality


Guiding Principles

  • All people should be treated with respect and dignity.
  • I will actively seek and value the opinions and perspective of others, as they view the world differently than I do and have valuable insights to offer.
  • I will seek first to understand others. I will listen, observe, and put myself in their shoes without evaluation or judgment.
  • I will be an authentic version of myself. I am who I am, no matter where I am or who I am with. My words and actions will be synonymous. I will strive to keep my commitments to others and myself.
  • I will foster an environment of continuous learning, growth, improvement, and innovation for myself and those around me. I will share my knowledge with others and seek their knowledge to grow collectively.
  • Fun will be a central part of my life. I believe life is too short not to have fun. I will integrate fun, in some way, shape, or form, for myself and others into everything I do.
  • I will hold myself to the highest standards of quality in everything I do. I expect the same quality from myself as I would from anyone else.

I have two posts where I talk about how I arrived at my values and guiding principles and my mission statement, and why I felt like it was important to take the time to determine what they are for me. These may change and evolve as my journey of self-discovery does, but after some pretty serious introspection, these are the results of what I think is central to who I am.
