My question is " "What is the relationship between short-term goals and long-term goals?"

I think that for one to be able to achieve their long-term goals, they need to set short-term goals and be able to meet them. But is there more to the relationship that is between long-term and short-term goals?

  1. I think you have it right. I'd change the terminology a bit, though, to clarify the difference between them. In grad school education courses, we were taught the following terminology:

    Goals -- long-term aims

    Objectives -- the specific steps (short-term) needed to reach goals; specific target dates are included for each objective.
