Short Powerful Statements…..makes the best mission statements. Over the years I have developed a love for one-liner jokes and graffiti…..and I learnt that those statements have more power than long-winded statements.

Who wrote: ‘ We shall fight them on the beaches, on the seas’….Winston Churchill
Who said – We need to obtain venture capitalist funding in order to create a system by which we can raise the competencies of our people so that one day we can invade other planets and establish our financial systems there…
In fact, No one – No it was not Goldman Sachs….
JFk just said: Let’s put a man on the moon by the Year X…
Who said: Don’t push me, Just don’t push me!
Anyway, I use this as a revelation exercise to teach the importance of vision and mission statements.
