Remaining True To Your Mission

Remain True To Your Mission
So many times we can get sidetracked and lose sight of our original goals.  We get caught up in the day-to-day operations or status quo.  Also, because our fraternal orgnizations may meet only once each month, it's easier to forget our objectives.
I find it helpful to have a model or diagram of the current mission, task or goal on paper.  Every month or so, I can refer to the model and refocus on the mission.  Often as leaders in fraternal organizations, clubs, etc. we can forget our original objectives for a term in office.  Pull the model out at team or officer meetings, review it and measure success achieved toward the goal.  This will help keep you and the team accountable and focused on the mission.
