Forming a personal mission statement means identifying your purpose. While this may sound like too profound a question on par with the meaning of life Rimm says asking “what am I here to do?” isn’t as challenging as it seems. Here, she walks us through what it takes to make a personal mission statement

For Rimm, a joyful life meant connecting with people on a daily basis and doing something that made a valuable contribution to someone else’s life.
