My Mission Statement
Happy New (Fiscal) Year 2010!
Have you made your New Year's Resolution yet? If not, here is an idea . . .
When I was working for Vice President Gore’s National Partnership for Reinventing Government in the 1990s, we were encouraged to craft personal mission statements.
My personal mission statement for more than a decade has been to “help create a government that is results-oriented, performance-based, citizen-focused, and collaborative in nature.”
I’ve found that this has helped me set priorities in what I do and how I approach my work. I’ve modified it over the years, but found that it provides a useful focus in my day-to-day thinking.
Do you have a personal mission statement that you would be willing to share?
