If you have one [mission statement] – whether for your podcast exclusively or for your business or other endeavors – at what point do you feel like you stuck the landing? (Read: Am I perseverating on my mission statement as busy work to procrastinate, or is that I’m just not quite *there* yet?)

In my head, it’s an ongoing process.
Part of the mission statement process is to put it down, and come back to it like in two months? Or 2x a year, and see if it still resonates with you.
I know that there are values or needs of our community or ME that need to be addressed.
Mind you, there are some folks that hit on that magic mission statement – and maybe the language changes a bit but not too much.
Not sure if my answer helps!!!!

It does make sense. I know my tendency is to just run a mental loop on things that seem like they are important in getting ready to do the work, and procrastinate actually doing the work. And it’s easy to do when we’re working in a silo, to stay in that loop longer than we should (at least I know that’s my tendency). I crafted a mission statement a couple of years ago, but it was crafted to speak to an organization I was applying for a grant from, and I’ve always felt like it didn’t really stick the landing. I’ve spent some time revisiting that in the past week or two, and I was having a hard time figuring out if I was just looping as a procrastination technique, or if it was valuable reflection time. What I appreciate about your response is that it allows me to say “Yes, it’s valuable reflection, but now it’s time to just do the work and reflect on it again later.”
