The Vision Statement is a picture of the future. "I wanna be rich." or "We're going to win the war."

The Vision inspires the Mission Statement, which is more specific and action-oriented. "I'm going to get good grades." or "As a spy, I will eliminate their leader."

You can't directly affect the vision without performing your missions.

The Vision is a Dream. So the vision statement articulates that perfect dream.

The Mission is a Task, a Plan. So the mission statement specifies the goal to be accomplished.

In an organization, many people can have individual missions, all to achieve the same vision. Alternatively, different missions at different times can all be planned to achieve the overall vision.
