A Mission is a Calling or a Vow

We consider a mission as a calling or a vow.
Niat (Indonesian) is placed deep down in our paradigm, in our way to see the world. It is a solemn promise to do specific things for life as a whole. It should be embedded in the organization by those who initiate it.

The Mission as Story and the Left and Right Hemispheres

I just read this very simple and powerful statement and it made me sit, very quietly, and think. And feel.
I believe you have captured the essence of mission whose use in the West is understood with a greater sense of practicality, though its etymology is religious or spiritual in nature.
Many of the wonderful comments in this thread are brushing against this deeper idea that you share. It is there, suit and tied, perhaps with less space to breath and shaped almost entirely by the left hemisphere of the brain. The rational voice.
I have tried to connect the two hemispheres, left and right, and use the Ashridge mission model to get there. It is being used in some business schools in Spain to teach about mission and vision.
Take care, Jenifer.
