Of course goals are important. As a grad student who was going to be involved with my dojo for only a few years before I move on, I set the goal of earning Shodan before I left. Had I not set this goal, and shared the goal with my Sensei, I might not have achieved it. There are many compitent aikidoka in the dojo who have studied longer than I who have not as yet earned Shodan. The main thing that is stopping them is that they have not set their mind to doing this.

If you're working too hard, you're doing it wrong.
