Today’s Target

Having a year-long policy on conducting your job is important. Thinking of how to tackle a daily task is important as well. A professional baseball player has a target for the season. But at the same time, in every game he should think, “I will win today’s game. I am not sure about the result. But I should win it by all means.” Of course he may not always win as he envisaged. However, we should all have this kind of daily target and think over how best we can achieve it. It may turn out to be interesting and enjoyable.
