Alignment: Mission, Vision, Purpose

I really enjoyed this simple yet powerful talk that reminds me of the intimate connection between purpose, mission, and strategy.

I think this applies to not only the way that we operate a business but also how we conduct our own personal lives:

When you’re aligned it solves a lot of the problems, especially when it comes to morale. I like this simple model to reflect on:

Purpose: Why do we exist?
Mission: Who do we serve?
Strategy: How do we do it?

A book that was mentioned that I haven’t read quite yet is Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. I’m definitely going to get a copy.
