What is the difference between a goal and an objective?  
The words goals and objectives are often used interchangeably and refer to the end state (or aim) that an individual strives to achieve. However, in the business world, objectives are often defined as the measurable achievements that one tries to accomplish to enable the individual to reach his/her goal. For example, a salesman may have a goal to increase his car sales by 20% at the end of a six-month period. He might create some objectives to achieve this goal such as coming up with two new marketing strategies by a specified date and achieving a 5% increase in sales after the first 2 months. Once he creates his objectives (these and perhaps others), he might develop an action plan that breaks down the objectives into more manageable and specific tasks. Learn more about goals and objectives from the references provided.
