“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
~J.R.R. Tolkien

Sounds simple, right?

Whether you’re trying to prioritize tasks for today, or you’re searching for your life-long calling, all you have to do is decide what to do within the time you have been given.

Because we don’t have forever. Time is finite.

Recently, I have reconnected with a group of folks online who grew up in the seventies in my hometown.

At 16, it feels like life is so long, like you have forever to decide what you will do with your life. Although some kids knew way back then the direction their lives would take, I would wonder for many years to come.

And even then, I ended up having to focus more on Who I would be rather than What I would be.

That’s where developing a personal mission statement really made a difference. Once I figured that out, no matter what my job is, or what my circumstances are, I am doing what I’ve decided to do every day for as long as I have been given.


Do you have a personal mission statement?
