  25. 25. Creating Them Purpose Goal is to energize and engage, and to provide identity. Hints Short and crisp (one or two sentences, at most a paragraph or two). Should capture something unique about what you want to do. It should be aspirational, an ideal, a destination for the journey. It should answer the question “Where are we heading?” It often completes “We want to…” or “We want to be…” It needs to be plausibly attainable. It should pass a “red faced test.” When you can, build it collaboratively. Collect phrases. Organize through affinity. Iterate to closure. Revisit it periodically as a team. 26
