According to him, the book provides information on what should be done when setting personal goals; that anyone who wants to be successful at the highest level needs to set achievable goals, noting that the goals should be clear and realistic so that one would be able to accomplish ones dream.
Dr. Drammeh said: “It is a fact that lots of people find it difficult to know if they are achieving positive results because they do not set goals. Anyone who wants to achieve something great should decide what he/she wants in life. The individual should also have a plan to guide him/her. He/she should carefully choose what he/she wants and should select personal objective areas he/she wishes to focus on in life”.
