Saturday night I woke up in the middle of the night and made a note of the thoughts that were in my head. When I woke up Sunday morning, this is what the notepad said:
“Think about the past. Strategize about the future. Live in the present.”
Wow. I wish I had more great moments like that when I am awake. Since I feel it is a great idea, I googled it to see if anyone else had that quote, and did not find anything. So maybe I have my first “quote.” Feel free to share.
I have been thinking a lot about who I am, what I believe in, what my mission in life is, and what I stand for. Not only have I been thinking about it, but I have been processing how I might eloquently put it all into words. A few weeks ago, I was doing an activity with my team at work and I had an ah ha moment. You know the kind. If you were on Oprah she might say she got goose bumps. It was a moment of clarity for me. I am not going to share just yet (yes you’ll have to be patient a little longer). I would like to sand the rough edges off my little mission statement. It is not yet ready for consumption.
Do you have your own mission statement? Just a few sentences you can share with others that tells them a lot about you. What are you passionate about, what pisses you off, what motivates you? Once I am done with the sand paper, I will share it here. I would love to hear from others about what steps they have taken to put together their own mission statement.
So glad you shared your midnight profundity! I’m going to ponder that…as well as a mission statement. Thanks for your always-thought-provoking blog!
Thank you, Siouxsioux!
