N5-347-14 13 Mission reflects the core values of an organization. communicates an organization’s long-term objectives. is a calling to pursue long-term objectives that typically reflect or support the core values of an individual or organization. **Why an organization exists** A mission

N5-347-14 18 Vision A vision is a picture of future success. A vision forms when we think far enough ahead to realize there will be important challenges that we can prepare for now. “Nothing happens unless first a dream.” – Carl Sandburg

N5-347-14 35 How it Began… In describing the process of formulating these guidelines, Baden-Powell explained: “Now I know that a real red-blooded boy is all for action, ready for adventure. He just hates to be nagged and told ‘You must not do this – you must not do that.’ He wants to know what he can do. So I thought why should we not have our own Law for Scouts, and I jotted down ten things that a fellow needs to do as his regular habit if he is going to be a man.” Lord Baden-Powell
