It is said that there is no legitimate activity in an organization that cannot be found in or justified by the mission statement. This may be seen as overdoing it, but unless your organization has more resources that it has demand, all of its actions and especially its expenditures, must be directed to the accomplishment of the mission. A self-test may be to recall the last week's activities and, without rationalization, find legitimacy for each one. Of course, justifying activities is most useful before the activity has taken place than it is after the activity has occurred.
