This afternoon, I was sitting on a park bench, catching some spring sunshine, and skimming through the book by Stephen Covey and Roger and Rebecca Merrill, First Things First.
The book talks about determining what’s really important to us and ensuring that we spend our time accomplishing these goals and not wasting time on things that either a) aren’t important and b) aren’t moving us in the right direction.
The book is packed with all kinds of fantastic information and tips. Also worth a look-see, is Appendix A, which is 15 pages dedicated to creating a personal mission statement.
When working with the Writer’s Plan, setting a mission is key. Everything flows from your mission. Once you know where you’re going and why, it’s easier to figure out how you’re going to get there.
