I set goals too, small ones and big ones. The small ones are food to fuel my initiative for the bigger ones.
Small ones, like, "I want to focus on improving my cuts" or "Focus on moving more from one-point".
Then the big ones, like "In randori, a technique picks you, you don't pick it. How does that apply to my job?" or something like exercising patience and making "one cut with the sword instead of many little nicks" at work.
