Creating Your M.V.P. Process doesn’t happen by accident.

Usually after I cover with my clients the importance of having an MVP Process they usually ask,

Coach P, how do I go about creating my MVP Process?

Because creating your M.V.P. Process doesn’t happen by accident, in this series, we will cover the steps it takes to create an intentional M.V.P. Process.


M = Mission

I define mission as the eulogy process or banquet process.  “What do you want people to say about you at a banquet being held in your honor? or “What you want to be written on your tombstone?”. A great mission has NO FINISH LINE.


Live a life that impacts others to be the best version of themselves.

V = Vision

I define vision as what you want to achieve, get done, and have on your life resume. 

For something to be a vision, it MUST HAVE CLEAR FINISH LINES.

I also set two types of visions:  

#1 Helicopter visions for my life.  In a helicopter you can see the landscape from above. 

The big picture view. I want to look out into the future beyond 90 days.

#2 Windshield visions for what I want to accomplish this quarter (3 month period) and this day

(More on this in another article as I explain developing a “168 plan”).

  • Run a 6-minute mile.
  • Make $100K a year.
  • Retire and live off interest at 50 years old.

P = Core Principles

I define core principles similar to how you might think of a set of core values or character traits.

These core principles define how you want to behave from moment-to-moment basis. You must define your core principles in your own words so that you bring more clarity to them.

You and I may both have the core principle of family or discipline and we could have completely different definitions.

Example:  Discipline – Doing what I know I should do regardless of how I feel.
