Aim small miss small

Do you remember the advice about shooting in the movie "The Patriot"?

Mel Gibson's character tells his sons "Aim small, miss small".

I think I understand what he means, finally. I think that he means that you
should aim at a small object. For example, aim at a button and not the
entire chest. Aim at the X in the bullseye not the entire bullseye and so on.

When I started following this advice (or my understanding of the advice),
my group sizes shrank in half.

Is aiming at the smallest thing you can identify a good tactic? And will this
tactic work for self defense?
