From the first time our mother told us not to steal the other kid’s sandbox toy to the wedding vows before the preacher we spend our lives gathering values. Some we will live our lives by, some we will loosely hold, others will be forgotten, and still more will be purposely tossed aside.
Businesses often share their values through their mission statements or literature. Mary Kay Cosmetics talks about valuing God, Family, and Business in that order. There has been debate about that but lets leave that out of this post for now.
At turning points in my life I have written mission statements for myself. I reflect on where I have been and where I want to go and what values are important to me and then I write it all down.
My challenge in this post is for each of us to write a mission statement. Write a mission statement for your MK business if you have one or write a mission statement for your life. This isn’t a goal sheet. This isn’t about writing down what prizes you want or the status to attain. This is about reflection and finding what is really important to you and/or to your individual Mary Kay business (as opposed to the company as a whole).
This exercise may bring up words or feelings that you don’t want to share. That is okay. If you do want to share then that is encouraged. There is a lot to be learned about and from one another through an exercise like this. I personally look forward to sharing and reading whatever may come from this entry.
