I can recommend a good book on how to craft your personal mission statement. It's called The Path by Lorrie Beth Jones. She does a good job of making it simple and gives you a formula to use as a guideline.
I think mission statements are great because you can guage all your actions against them to see if you're "on mission" or "off mission"...which will help you stay focused and use your time more wisely.
good luck! Let me know how it goes.

If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything
I am working on crafting my personal mission statement and was wondering if anyone would be interested in posting theirs? I'd love to see what others have as I write my own.
Also, I am looking for suggestions on how people stay focused. Mainly how they don't get distracted by routine everyday things.
For example, it seems like most of my day is bogged down with yardwork, renovating my old house, paying bills, etc. (I own a house by myself) -- things that need to be done that I can't afford to hire out, but distract me from my goals. How does everyone deal things like this and staying focused?
