What’s a Goal?

Your goal is what you want to dedicate yourself to achieving. If you love animals, your goal might be “To be a vet that keeps animals healthy.” If you’re a musician, your goal might be “I want to take over the Top 40.” No goal is too big or too small. Keep your response under 350 characters.
