    Mission Statement Rationale

    Have you ever thought about what a professional difference it would make to your business, and / or your team, and / or your website, from a perception, a success, and a sales standpoint, if you had a Mission Statement to guide you?

    Another way of looking at Mission Statements is that they are part two of a two-part description of the overall business intent. Vision Statements, part one, describe the future: where you are going or where you want to go. While Mission Statements, part two, describe today: why you exist today and / or what you are doing to pursue your vision of the future. Together they provide direction for the business by focusing your attention on doing things day-to-day to accomplish your mission, while taking steps to pursue your vision of the future - your long-term business intent.

    Note: From a chronological standpoint the Mission Statement is usually created first - out of need. The Vision Statement will usually be formulated after the business has progressed to the point that it's viable and profitable. However, from a Business Planning or Business Model perspective the Vision Statement is usually listed first.

    Without Mission Statements organizations will flounder and pull in different directions. Employees must be clear about business intent if you want a team that's focused on the priorities.

    Our Mission Statements Formulation Package contains several example Mission Statements, is easily customizable in almost any word processing software, and most of all, there is no waiting! This Mission Statements Formulation Package is available via download... and you could be printing and publishing one in a matter of minutes.

    Enhances the professional perception of your business

    Fosters a team oriented environment

    I am here to get this right, then I get to go home. A long time ago I thought that love was something that you reserved for some special set of people that you had judged worthy of it. After a while I got to thinking about what Jesus had said about turning the other cheek and loving our neighbor I put the two together and realized that he had made no exceptions in these statements. It became obvious to me that he intended that we exclude no one from the love that we are supposed to be giving. I started thinking about my idea of love and suddenly realized that I had not been loving anyone at all. I had simply been judging everyone and every thing. Judging someone worthy of love is not love, it is only judgment. I actually started to cry when I realized this. I saw just how much of my life I had wasted being judgmental, thinking of myself as a Christian, when I was actually doing just the opposite of what Jesus had asked us to do. I thought about the verse judge not lest ye be judged, and I understood it for the first time. I realized that I have a lot of catching up to do. So many opportunities were wasted. I now try to apply the love that I have for the world in a universal way like Jesus asks us to do. If I start to feel afraid and think that I see someone that I should not love because of something I have thought or heard I try to catch my mistake as soon as possible. I tell myself that I have forgot the truth and have fallen for the same old trick that had cost me so many opportunities to be loving in the past. The horror of this realization is often all that is necessary to bring me back to my senses and make me drop the judgmental nonsense I was thinking. I still have a lot to learn about love, but at least I’m making progress. Love and blessings Your brother Don

    It is a statement that puts the values and goals of a company into writing and they then use that to brain wash their employees into doing those things.

    Err your question is a little bit vague...

    But I know at my school they have one.

    It is basically a statement (a document or paragraph etc) that says what you are planning to do/aim to do etc.

    My school's for example, says about how it aims to help children learn through doing blah blah blah

    Hope thats helped a bit....
