Personal Mission Statement ______________________

Focus Commitment

I agree to commit a portion of my total productive focus time to the pursuit of the above aims. This portion can be defined as percent of total - with 100% being virtually all productive focus time - or as hours per week.

This is an estimate, and its purpose is to give the DAO Masons an idea of how much focus time we can expect from our team as a whole.

Amount: ____

  • %
  • hrs/week

It is understood that a reasonable allowance for side projects and creative endeavors necessary for my personal sovereign expression is made without impacting a 100% focus commitment.

Trusted System

I agree to keep and maintain a personal "Trusted System" that includes my active projects, current commitments, and completed work. This system should be external to my own mind, and be something others can see and interact with on request.

Accountability I agree to be open to encouragement and accountability from other DAOmasons regarding my alignment with the above statements. If I am unable or unwilling to receive encouragement or accountability regarding my alignment with the above statements, I will schedule a time in the near future where I will be prepared to receive such. I will state my needs and boundaries and request mediation when needed.
