|Are you doing that on purpose? or can't you make up your mind?|
I was recently tasked with writing a Mission Statement for The FamiLeeJewels and spent a lot of time thinking about it.
Is it really necessary to have a mission statement for such a small endeavor?
Don't I already know why I am doing this?
Will it made a difference to write it down?
The answer to all of these is yes.
Thinking about the questions has given me clarity and the idea to plan a New Year of reasonable goals in bite sized portions that will allow me to enjoy the journey.
Focus and Direction.
Those are my words for planning 2011.
The work begins with a Mission Statement.
The FamiLee Jewels purpose is to create unique and wearable art using vintage, antique and recycled objects; to maintain our joy and passion for the process; and to provide a product that is as durable and comfortable to wear as it is lovely.

I like the scarecrow analogy :)ReplyDelete
I can relate to the scarecrow feeling sometimes. I get so excited about new work I tend to skip ahead and forget to enjoy the process. I like your mission statement!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I do intend to enjoy the process starting now. No more overloading the schedule or drowning in lists for this Wizard wannabe.ReplyDelete
