Goals are good.
A well-defined goal provides a clear picture of where you want to go. It dictates what you need to work on. It provides direction and motivation.
Having a goal is important, but once a goal is set, your focus needs to shift to the process. The process is the intentional action you make over time that takes you to where you want to go.
If the goal is the where, then the how is the process, strategy plus action.
