When our eyes are clearly fixed on an objective, with intermediate points as guides, we follow an unswerving path to where we want to go. I’ve read stories about Babe Ruth … the great baseball home run hitter for the New York Yankees. Sometimes he would point to the bleachers over the right field fence with his bat; letting everyone know where he planned to hit the ball. In the same way, we should be able to point to what we want to accomplish.

Step Ahead

You set out today
For the best day by far
By pointing out
What the objectives are.

Gaining perspective
And getting the directive,
Your eyes are clearly
Fixed on the objective.

With intermediate
Points as your guide,
Accomplish with pride
Things never been tried.

Like a baseball player
With eyes on the ball
Put your focus on
The objective above all.

With confidence
As your day has begun;
Ready to hit home runs
And have some fun.
