What have you done with your life? This is something people often ask when they hit their mid-life years. They question their life’s achievements and when they calculate how much time is left, they can doubt the possibility of achieving anything really significant.
If you're like most people you would have experienced the frustration of knowing you're capable of achieving so much more than you have seen already. The question therefore is, “How can we get past this and move forward to achieve more with our lives? Many businesses and organisations have a Mission Statement. The benefit of a Mission Statement is that it defines why the business or organisation exists and can be used as a filter to determine what things they will pursue. This helps them move forward rather than running in circles pursuing every good idea, and in reality - achieving none.
So, what is the Mission Statement for your life? Why do you exist? Have you given much thought to this (or have you thought, “We’ll just see what happens?”) Once you know what your Mission is, write it down. Hab 2:2 says, “Write the vision make it plain so that whoever reads it may run with it.” It’s good to constantly have a reminder before you as to where you are going, and what you are doing because this will help you get there. The place of your focus is the place of your travel.
Once you have identified your Mission, then clearly write down your goals. Start with where you would like to be at in 2 years. Then list where you need to be at in 90 days so that you will achieve your goals in 2 years. List where you need to be and what you need to have done at 4 weeks, then 2 weeks then every day of this week.
Now you simply put into practice, your “Mission Possible”.
