Goals are dreams with deadlines.–Hal Urban

A vision is a picture of who we want to be or how we want things to be sometime in the future. The purpose of a vision is to challenge us to change, to transform ourselves or our world. The key here is in the challenge. If every step on the way to our vision is clear, then there is no challenge. That vision is not worth having. The path to a worthwhile vision is necessarily unclear. Unfortunately that means it can be difficult to know if you are making progress.

Goals are one way to address this problem. Ideally goals are signposts on the way to our long term vision of who we want to be. The let us know if we are heading toward our goal at a reasonable pace.
