Man writing a mission statement

— Noll Images/Glasshouse

7. Take the long view and write a personal mission statement. Some people call this a bucket list. What's yours? By now you're probably aware that time is both precious and limited. This awareness is actually a gift that can help you make choices that add meaning to your life. Mark Twain said, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
