What’s Your Mission? February 16, 2010

Today was about goals.  The external environment changes rapidly.  Much more rapidly than we would often prefer, and sometime more often than we are able to match.

But it is still necessary to set goals based on the information you have available at the time.  This isn’t to say that we should obsess over particular achievements, however.  With every change comes the opportunity to revisit our goals – and our personal and business mission statements.

As an entrepreneur, you are in the unique position of having a personal mission that meshes quite nicely with that of your business.  After all, for many, the business is their life.  But the larger the organization, the more it becomes necessary to reaffirm the business mission, and to further ensure that it still does indeed reflect the personal goals of the founders.

Don’t be afraid of changing the goals in the middle of the game.  Also don’t forget that it’s okay to decide that your personal goals don’t necessarily fit with the organization’s.
