Progress vs. Goals: Which Works Better?

It’s better to make progress than to meet a goal.
You will tell me, there are goals, that need to be done, to make other goals start.
Let’s break this down.
Goals.

  1. Wait for $35.
  2. Use that $35 to buy shoes.
  3. Use the bought shoes for running.
  4. Make progress toward living a healthy life.

While waiting to get paid $35, why not borrow shoes from a friend.
Start running and make progress toward living a healthy life.
When the money comes, buy the shoes, and meet the goal.
