Hello friends, it gives me immense pleasure to be able to communicate my thoughts to you once more.  Am so glad for this singular priviledge of having you reading through my blog on a consistent basis, and I know your life have been blessed so far; because mine have been hugely blessed by these series.

Now, I want to rush some thoughts over to you and hope that they would actually spur you into taking action.  A wise saying goes like this " it is not what you know that matters but what you do with what you know that counts", and this is reinterated by Donald Trumph, the business mongul, he said " what's the use of having great knowledge without sharing them?".

These thoughts are:
1) Are you living a life of Purpose?  If you've had the opportunity of reading Rick Warren's  awarding winning book, The Purpose-Driven Life, you won't have problem with this question.  I believe it's a "must-read" for any serious minded individual on this planet earth. The Principles of purpose shared there are profound and very fundamental to anyone who wants to make a significant impact on earth...Like you must have known from these series, life on earth is all about impact.

2) Do you now have S.M.A.R.T goals? If you've been following us on these series, by God, by now, you should have goals written down. By S.M.A.R.T goals I mean:
S- specific goals
M- measurable goals
A- achievable goals
R- realistic goals
T- time-bounded goals or time-based goals
You see friends, for your goals to be worthwhile and really make impact they should really meet the above requirements.

3) How do you spend your leisure time? What's your idea of leisure? what do you do with your own time? On saturdays  that you do not go to work, what do you do with your time?  I have come to know that people who actually make significant progress in life use their leisure time for self-development and personal improvement programmes. Instead of lazing around and watching Prison-Break for 6 straight hours, why not pick up a book, like Goals! by Brian Tracy and read for just 1 hour? You'll be amazed at the results after you do that for 4 saturdays.

In concluding for now...I want to challenge you...dare friend to pick a pen and paper right now and write down, Specific,Measurable,Achievable,Realistic and Time-bound goals right now...and start to take action on fulfilling them...common for once in your life, set a target for yourself that you will surely follow through!.  You will succeed!...see you at the top!. TAKE CHARGE!
