Why? Because, for all my enthusiasm, I never reached a point where Stephen actually told me HOW to write the statement (which, given the title, is something of a failure). Instead it gives longwinded anecdotes and waxes endlessly about how important and lifechanging a personal mission statement can be, even stating that mission statements which don't work have failed because they aren't written properly. But give an example of how to do it correctly? Explain things properly, rather than in empty, wishy washy language that doesn't actually mean anything? Forget it. This book's beginning, middle and conclusion was, "You should have a mission statement because they are good. Also, they should reflect your values." I left none the wiser. In fact, I learned more about his Highly Effective Habits theory, given that all of these habits were actually listed at the back of the book.
Also, it was ridiculously short, yet perplexingly padded out. I got to the end and was confused - surely that wasn't it? Had I only acquired a sample? Had I skipped chapters on my Kindle accidentally? I checked. Twice. Nope.Read more ›
A couple of the chapters are written by members of his organisation and feel like a natural part of the book. It is a nice thoughtful touch that he recognised his team in that way. The mission statement is there "to live, to love, to learn and to leave a legacy" and there is no doubt he achieved his own mission. The book ranges from lofty terms such as "highest and best use" to wise stories to demonstrate reflection on our values and emotions.Read more ›
I'm a fan of the 7 and 8th Habits but I don't feel this really delivers. It may also be important to note that several key chapters are NOT actually written by Mr Covey.
What this book essentially tells you to do, if you'd like a personal mission statement, is to go away and think about it.
I'm going to do just that; and perhaps that will help revise my opinion, but right now, I don't feel that this book has helped equip me for the task.
