"Your mission, should you decide to accept it..."
This opening line from the late 60's/early 70's, popular TV show Mission: Impossible, set the stage for what seemed to be an impossible task; naturally, the MI team never declined this weekly challenge, and, of course, always succeeded. Ah, the wonders of television!
In the real world, most successful companies also have a mission, and that mission is worded in a mission statement.

Does it seem impossible, realistic or even worth it to put the commitment, time and energy into creating and living a principle centered culture?
Steven Covey's " The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People" can serve as an inexpensive, yet priceless tool in helping us to create, build, foster and live out a unique mission statement.
