Moses turned his back on Egypt and its riches and identified with the Israelites because he had a purpose.You need to visualise what God would want you to accomplish in line with your organisation's mission. As a general guideline, do not deviate from your organisation's mission. Keep it in focus.
24By faith Moses, when he had grown up,Paul endured insults, persecutions and imprisonment because he had a purpose.
refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,
25choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God
than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,
26considering the reproach of Christ greater riches
than the treasures of Egypt;
for he was looking to the reward.Heb 11:24-26
But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself,
so that I may finish my course and the ministry
which I received from the Lord Jesus,
to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.

There are many things that can be done and we need wisdom from the LORD to know what is needed and what is not.Achievable ... realistic yet faith stretchingInspiring ... challenging your people to give of their bestMeasurable ... quantifiable including scope1 and target dateShared ... declaring your conviction in and commitment to them
1Designate who or what will be affected and in what ways they will be affected ... In the above objective, the scope defined is not training people how to share the gospel but training them to share the gospel with children. A modification of the objective might be training 100 children to share the gospel with other children.
Many plans are in a man's heart,We all have a natural tendency to gravitate to what we are comfortable with; the challenge is to determine what needs to be done even when they are beyond our circle of confidence.
But the counsel of the LORD will stand.
