To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal. (A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, late president of India)

We seem to admire people who can “multi-task.” They appear to be able to do a number of things at the same time, or be involved in a variety of projects with a measure of success in all of them. That doesn’t work for most of us. We probably will do better if we follow Kalam’s counsel. If we concentrate on one primary goal, we’ll more likely succeed.

I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race (Philippians 4:13-14).
