When Tom French turned seventy, his wife gave him a collection of notes from ninety-eight friends and colleagues. Each note shared the difference Tom had made in their lives, and he noticed that each note spoke to qualities and actions that Tom had set up as goals for himself in a mission statement written 20 years prior. He wrote this book to help other individuals see how living on a mission positively affects the lives of their work associates, family members, and friends. His own mission statement helped him begin to look forward to working, trust his intuition, and provide direction to his customers and employees.
