How to write our "Mission Statement of Life"?
Why am I here?
What do I want to accomplish in life?
What or who is important to me (aka “values”)?
What are my priorities?
Below is mine, and it' an evolving one:
I am here to enjoy my life to the fullest, and to make people surrounding me happy. My mission in life is to first and foremost live for myself, the people around me, and the values I cherish the most --- honesty, integrity, hard-working and optimism.
Secondly, I aspire to be a loving husband to my wife. I will strive to love her like Christ loved the church. I will try to put myself in her shoes.
As a father, I will strive to be loving and accepting. I realize that my kids are different, each possessing different talents and abilities given to them by God, and I will strive to treat them accordingly. I will discipline them with love. I will strive to be a good role model for them.
As my parents' son, I will be there for them in any situation, and will be a good son who always treat them with respect, and love.
As both a software developer and manager, I will always try to do what’s best for my company, my bosses, the people who work for me, and for my clients. I will study and keep up on what is happening within the financial industry and technology field. My goal is to help my company and my clients achieve their goals and dreams. With full attention and hard work, and God’s blessing, it can be done.
As a experienced financial software engineer and manager, I will give back to my community. I would like to eventually teach classes in a community college or a high school and will dedicate myself to worthy causes. I will also share my experience through blogging.
Finally, in order to live out this mission, I must be healthy. Therefore, I will eat a proper diet and exercise daily. I will read this statement every day to remind me what are important in my life.
