mission:

. . . a guiding purpose which suggests a vision.

An OCW MIT.edu lecture notes resource titled Leadership Skills for the 21st Century quotes Warren Bennis as follows: (There is) at least one ingredient that every leader I talked with shared: a concern with a guiding purpose, an overarching vision. They were more than goal-directed. (source of quote).

Vision Statements are guiding beliefs about how things should be done (source of quote). The distinction between a mission statement and a vision statement is that the latter doesn't typically involve setting goals and objectives.

A mission is also an operation of special assignment. To assign a mission is to impose a duty, responsibility, or obligation on oneself or likewise charge a group to a common purpose (source of quote). Well organized missions begin with strategic planning. Mission statements contribute to creating goals and objectives as well as making policies and evaluating accomplishment(s).
