Former Starbucks President on How To Stay Motivated!

From left to right: Howard Behar, Orin Smith, and Howard Schultz

Companies have mission statements to explain why they exist... 📃

Starbuck’s mission statement is "to inspire & nurture the human spirit - one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time." ☕️

A personal mission statement is very similar. 🖇

My recent guest, former President of Starbucks, Howard Behar, wrote his when he was 27 after dropping out of college and feeling directionless. 🧭

Here’s how he found his “why” and how you can too!👇

1) Find out what your core values are. 💭

What do you stand for? What do you stand against?

2) Write down what you want to be known for in 50 words or less. ✍️

As you’ll find in the full convo, Howards’ mission statement evolved over time! 🕰

So, don’t worry about perfecting yours! 🙅‍♂️

What’s your personal mission statement? Is it written down? 🤔
