Vision and Mission are the two legs of a person which help to take the steps towards success. Making a vision statement & mission statement can give you a boost which expands new horizons. It provides you a purpose and direction for personal and professional life. Also, it will help you to make short term and long term goals that you want to accomplish. In addition, it will help you to make proper decisions in your personal and professional life as well.
Here is a need to understand that both terms are interrelated to each other. So, make sure about the clarity of your thoughts & understanding of these terms. Without it, you can’t do things in a proper way. The vision statement focuses on tomorrow which is all about the long-term goals that you want to achieve in the future. While the mission statement focuses on today as it is all about setting some clear objectives to reach the desired destination.
So, before starting anything new, you should set some objectives in order to reach the top. Remember, if you have clarity in your mind, you will know what you are going to do. Similarly, while setting your vision, you should aware of the long-term goals you want to achieve in your life.
Let me give you an example; we have eyes but have you ever thought that why Almighty Allah has gifted us the eyes?
Eyes are to see things with a clear vision as it provides us a way. Similarly, having a clear vision and mission gives you a proper understanding of what you are going to do. It directs you towards the right path. It helps you identifying objectives, purposes, and approaches to get the desired outcome. However, it is essential to set a mission & vision statement in your personal & professional life which works as a roadmap to your future.
