mine is “never lose your punk rock attitude” but i don’t think that would get me the job – although, i’m in a creative field so i could spin it.!

I like to live by the old standard “Check yourself before you wreck yourself” – also something that would not get me a job.

I have two – “live passionately and accomplish things” is my more ambitious one.  Sometimes I don’t quite live up to the passionate part, so I have a less-lofty motto as well: “don’t be useless.”

i actually think Simon Doonan was the person who said mine first and he’s creative director of Barney’s which is a pretty amazing job!

I have a lot for myself. My business is different 🙂

“those who save one life, save the world entire.” by Oscar Schindler.

“A woman must hide her heart in the heart of God so that a man must go there to find it.”

“Waste no more time talking about great souls and how they should be. Become one yourself!” Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

“2 people who speak make more noise than 10,000 who are silent” Napoleon Bonaparte

“if my muscles ache, it’s because I’ve used ’em. It’s hard for me to walk up them steps now, its ‘cuz I walked up ’em every night to lay next to a man who loved me. I got a few wrinkles here and there, but I’ve layed under thousands of skies with sunny days. I look and feel this way, well cuz I drank and I smoked. I lived and I loved, danced, sang, sweat and screwed my way thorough a pretty damn good life if you ask me. Getting old ain’t bad. Getting old, that’s earned.” The Guardian

Those aren’t so much “mission statements” but quotes which dictate how I live my life.

“Life isn’t a dress rehearsal.”

 

I say this more as motivation to get dressed up, but it certainly has other applications!

“That which does not kill you makes you stronger.” – Nietzsche

“Cowards die many times before their deaths.” – Caesar

And, on a less depressing note, “Citius.  Altius. Fortius.” – The Olympic motto.

I guess my motto is more or less: When things get harder, you’re getting closer to your goal.

And courtesy of my friends: Legality is so overrated.

Yeah, that’ll get me a job. As a pirate. Yarr!

Wouldn’t say it in a job interview, necessarily, but “I want to love first, and live incidentally” is my personal motto.

But I guess I could spin it to mean passion and pride inevitably lead to quality work.

mine is “but as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord” but that might be totally awkward in an interview!
