My Personal Mission Statement

For a long time I had this Richard Bach quote, "Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't" on the top of the organizer / notebook which I carried with me everywhere in college. It reflected the fire in my belly to do something good, something big with my life - kept me focused on my organizational initiatives and entrepreneurship during college. Much later, I formalized my personal mission statement as part of a life-changing workshop by the Oasis Institute based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This mission statement has been the driving force as well the north star of much that I have been doing in the last decade.

My Personal Mission Statement

My mission in my lifetime is to:

  • Enjoy my family while ensuring the growth of self, my wife, child(ren) and family
  • Be healthy, fit and active in sports till my last day
  • Make Fountainhead a harbinger of change in the Indian Education system
  • Be an agent of change and growth for all those around me
  • Write and publish at least two books, which will help people to think for themselves
  • Ensure that India becomes a well-governed nation with every Indian having access to basic services that every human deserves
  • Will strive to make the whole world a happy, peaceful & sustainable place to live in

The values that I shall abide by during this process are:

  • Integrity
  • Passion / Enjoyment
  • Excellence
  • Quest for truth in all spheres of life:
  • Perpetual Growth
  • Fairness
  • Ready to pay a price to help self and others grow

  1. I hope this drive remains with you for the longest of time. A lot of this idealism is often lost once you enter young adulthood for most people. I am guessing those that keep it are some of the few who see success nd change in their lives.
