Purpose & Goals
Before we proceed, let’s take a moment to discuss the significance of purpose, mission, and core values in shaping a meaningful online presence. These fundamental aspects define the heart and character of your business, guiding every step it takes toward achieving its goals.
Definition: Purpose refers to the reason for which a business or organization exists. It embodies the overarching goal or intention behind its existence, going beyond just making a profit. It represents the higher calling or societal impact that the business aims to achieve.
Example: Patagonia – Their purpose is to “build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, and use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.” Patagonia’s purpose goes beyond selling outdoor apparel; they are committed to environmental sustainability and raising awareness about environmental issues.
Definition: Mission is a concise statement that outlines the fundamental purpose and scope of a business. It defines what the organization does, who it serves, and how it operates to fulfill its purpose.
Example: Tesla – Their mission is “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.” Tesla’s mission statement clearly communicates their focus on renewable energy solutions and their commitment to reducing the world’s dependence on fossil fuels.
Definition: Values are the guiding principles and beliefs that shape an organization’s culture, decision-making processes, and interactions with stakeholders. They are the fundamental beliefs that guide how a business conducts itself.
Example: Google – Their core values include “Focus on the user,” “Fast is better than slow,” and “You can be serious without a suit.” These values influence Google’s approach to creating user-friendly products, prioritizing speed and innovation, and fostering a relaxed and creative work environment.
Purpose vs. Mission
The key difference between purpose and mission lies in their scope. Purpose is the higher reason for a business’s existence, encompassing the broader impact it aims to make. On the other hand, mission is a more specific statement that outlines what the business does and how it works to fulfill its purpose. Purpose represents the “why,” while mission represents the “what and how.”
Mission vs. Value
While mission outlines the primary objective and scope of the business, values are the guiding principles that influence how the business operates and behaves. Mission is more focused on the business’s external goals, whereas values are more concerned with the internal culture and decision-making ethos.
Purpose vs. Value
Purpose and values are connected but distinct concepts. Purpose represents the fundamental reason for a business’s existence and the positive impact it aims to make, whereas values are the core principles and beliefs that drive the business’s behavior and decisions. Purpose defines the higher calling, while values define the guiding principles that lead to fulfilling that purpose.
