Cole Ikerd Mission Statement

Updated on March 5, 2013

A Great Question

windygreen asked a great question about our missions. This is my response to that question. Thank you windygreen for the inspiration to bring this up. I might just have put this off for too long.

The Assignment

In a class I was taking, we were required to put together a mission statement. The purpose of this was to help direct your life to a clear goal or set of goals. This is a great exercise to help sort priorities and better understand self.

Below is what I put together for the assignment.

Mission Statement:

I am committed to help mankind progress and reach greater potential through education, cooperation, and understanding. I believe in order to maximize our potential we must:

  1. See past –selfish- competition to a collaborative future; competing with progress in mind and sharing what we have learned from the results.
  2. Use energy efficient technologies that work in harmony with nature.
  3. Incorporate technologies that utilize and protect the natural wonders around us.
  4. Cooperate on a personal, community, and global scale to meet the needs of all and raise the standard of living for every life on our planet.

All of these goals are achievable with hard work and an open mind.

What Will Your Mission Statement Look Like?

Perhaps mine is a little cheesy... maybe too altruistic. But isn't that the point of a dream? To push the limits of what we know.

I don't have the exact formula for the way I did mine. It was probably proprietary anyway and I'd get in trouble for sharing that process. But the point stands.

There are no wrong answers, this is what is inside of you. Think about what you want out of life. What is it that you value? What drives you?

Give us a statement that helps to signify that purpose.

Give us tangible, real world ideas of what that means.

Give us a sample of what it takes for you to make it happen.

Et voila! Your mission statement is complete!

If you have a Mission Statement, or make one, please share it with me. I love to see where people are going.

      All useful,valid,and hopeful points,well made.I believe that we can achieve most things that we put our minds to,if the goals are realistic and worthy enough,or by standing upon the shoulders of giants in order to achieve what sometimes seems to be the nigh-on impossible.

      Faith,collaboration,and common purpose can achieve most goals.
