    When you are using the word "goal", its definition applies all the same no matter what you add after it.

    May I suggest you use "way" instead of "goal" in order to convey your thoughts in a more precise manner?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Can't really get anymore specific than that, because happiness is on the same level as taste. Just figure out what makes you happy, then do it on a daily basis.
    I think we're in violent agreement here.

    Definitions of goal:

    the state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates behavior intended to achieve it;

    finish: the place designated as the end (as of a race or journey);
    So, it has always annoyed me when people are overly literal or precise with my use of words. My internal reaction is exasperation, you're being overly precise and missing the point of what i'm trying to say. Now I know why. It is because I do exactly this same thing. Thank you for helping me to realize this.

    Well, since we're being precise, the other word in the OP is "motivation".
    1. giving of reason to act: the act of giving somebody a reason or incentive to do something
    2. enthusiasm: a feeling of enthusiasm, interest, or commitment that makes somebody want to do something, or something that causes such a feeling
    3. reason: a reason for doing something or behaving in a particular way
    4. psychology forces determining behavior: the biological, emotional, cognitive, or social forces that activate and direct behavior

    I don't know if that makes it any better but I think we're likely pretty much in agreement in either case, as far as the general gist of it is concerned.
