Wisdom strengthen the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city ec.7:19

The best way of making an efficient impact or decision or actions is that simply use the principle of target. God does not have interest in quantity of work but the quality.

It is possible to have a dream to rank equal with john Wesley in numbers of messages preached. May be about 40,000 thousand is your goal as a preacher. You probably want your sermon notes published to meet up with C.H Spurgeon 3,561 semons. You may want to write songs to meet up the number of fanny j. crosby or Charles Wesley. May be your goal is to compose music piece that will be better than Handel messiah, Beethoven, Mozart or many other outstanding music composers in history. You may want to write poems that will meet up with john Milton and homer. You may want to exceed Newton and Albert Einstein in scientific discoveries. You may want to meet up with legendary pele of brazil, the football stalwart and Tiger wood the notable gulf player. You may want to build cathedra and have members as many as David Yong cho and some other with those records.
All these are records, and they could be records of limitation at your part. You may want to write the best selling books and bag the award the “best author”, it is still not the peak You may be able to do more than that. It is not an offence to bag awards of all of these. But it is necessary to set your goals to win and keep wining at your best performance, with need in the life of people met and your God glorified. Either you broke the records last time or set new one or you did not get that close to the records, you should always have the desire to do all the best of your performance, without destroying any one’s purpose and life and glorify God. If you can achieve all these in your life time, you are a champion. You are not wining until you have met a need; fulfilled a purpose that is capable of inspiring someone now and tomorrow and accomplish a necessary task, fulfilling the pleasure of God.
Any thing you want to do must fulfil some set of criteria to test the purpose. Once that is done, you are a champion. It is not the number of books written that matters or the number of messages that matter. It is not the number of inventions you have patented in your name and the incredible numbers of composed songs and music. It is not the incredible speed you run once and you never can break it again. It is not the amount of money you are able to gather in your lifetime that matters but it is the need you are able to meet, credible purpose you are able to fulfil and God given task and vision you are able to accomplish, that should be the target in life!
Target from the dictionary meaning is “an object with a marked surface that is shot at to test accuracy, something aimed or fired at”
using the alphabet of target in acronym.
