How are the tactical plan and the goals related to long-term objectives (LTO) and Critical Success Factors in your experience?
How can you be successful in reaching goals, if you don't define what your goals are and develop specific methods for reaching those goals?
Knowing your goals gives you a direction to follow. What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime? It also helps to define a criterion for that goal. If the goal is to become rich, how much money and resources do you have to get to consider yourself "rich."
Even if you have specific goals, you need to develop well-defined methods to reach those goals. For example, your goal might be to lose weight. Unless you define what specific behavioral changes you will make, you will never reach that goal. That is why friends who say, "Let's get together some time," rarely get together.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
