I used to go through life without a proper goal or a clear sense of direction. I just lived one day at a time. Of course it was very easy to live like that, but after a while I wanted to derive more from my life.

Hence I was searching for direction and purpose in life and though I have not fully discovered either of them yet, I have come up with a personal mission statement. This personal mission will change over time just like corporate mission statements change over time. This page will contain the Mission Statements and thier evolution over time.

Version 1.0

Personal Mission Statement of Sampath Dassanayake:

  • I will be a light, not a judge.
  • Succeed at home first – I will love my family unconditionally and will be available.
  • Excel at work – I will give 100% to the job at hand, without worrying about the next promotion or the job.
  • Be proactive –  I will act before being acted upon. I will be my own creator.
  • I will create my own destinity without waiting for others to do so. (Begin with the end in mind)

I have also created another mission statement around the current roles that I play. Here it is:
