Try not to confuse Vision with Goals. I know this is semantics but the
Vision should be multi-year and relatively unchangeable while the Goals
should be realizable in a fixed period and should be adjusted to maintain
their attainability. Otherwise, there may be a disconnect.

I spent several years setting sales goals and attainability while
incorporating maximum stretch was always a balancing act.
