Do You Have a Plan or a Mission?

Seth Godin is a thinker I look up to. He says, “Plans are good but missions are better.”

Plans will let you down but missions endure for the long haul.

Plans have a limited shelf life. They come and go. They are packaged and eventually, they wear out. Missions cause us to move forward for the rest of our lives.

A mission is something God himself touches the deepest part of our lives with – and in turn, changes the world through us.
