Over the weekend I read THIS POST that opened with:
Today at the annual American Montessori Conference, Mitchel Adler, the keynote speaker, challenged everyone in the audience to write a personal mission statement.
Inspired, I drafted my own Mission Statement:
I aspire to be the kind of person who never stops learning. Learning to me means I read lots to understand how best to live in the world. Learning to me means I write lots knowing that by writing, I come to understand my world and then by more writing, I can change my world. Learning to me means I reflect often by asking lots of questions about what is working and what could be better and then taking the steps toward the better.
What would YOUR MISSION STATEMENT BE?
These questions and stems helped me to get started:
* Who do I want to be?
*Why do I want to be that way?
* I aspire to be…
* I wish to cultivate…
