1 Group One, Forum Eleven Douglas Barnes Liberty University Follow Your Mission This paper evaluates the relationship between one’s mission and being effective. Satterlee (2009) informs that a mission provides the reason for being. Clifton and Nelson (1992) support that, stating “a mission gives purpose to life” (p. 121). Drucker (2006) assesses that effectiveness is about doing the right things, which reasons that goals and activities must align with the mission. The relationship between having a mission and being effective implies that there is minimal benefit to accomplishing a goal unless it supports the mission. Consider the conflict of a Christian university employing Muslim instructors, or a fast-food restaurant with slow service. Missions prevent aimless wandering by providing guidance to support decision-making as issues arise (Clifton & Nelson, 1992). Leaders with a mission are more effective, because “people want to follow a leader who knows where he or she is going” (p. 117).
