I was challenged to develop a statement of mission or purpose in 1983. Statements asked of us by Deakin University’s (Geelong Australia) Dr Colin Moyle asked that we develop a statement of 25 words of less which would be our precept and guide going forward. I spent a great deal of time in developing the following focus:

” To fulfil and be fulfilled in organisational mode: Famiily, work, recreation;
To acquit my responsibilities with integrity;
To work with a smile in my heart.”

This guide is one I reflect upon regularly and have on the reverse side of my business card. It has been of great focussing value to me over the years. Do others have statements or mottos that reflect the principles shaping their actions? Would you be prepared to share?
