Mission (glossary entry)  

On these pages, mission is more likely to refer to long-term or permanent missions ("my life mission statement"), rather than a specific mission ("your mission will be to get the teams working together more effectively")

Mission is usually pursuant to a purpose.

Mission is achieved mainly through the accomplishment of goals.

Many people distinguish mission from purpose out of respect for religious principles. This distinction is evident in the widely held belief:

I may not know for what purpose I was put in this world. but I can adopt a mission and pledge to serve it throughout my life.
