In the book Atomic Habits by James Clear, there’s a quote that helps differentiate between “goals” and “systems” (habits). James says this:
Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems are best for making progress.James Clear, Atomic Habits

It’s even more important, though, to develop the daily habits that will provide progress toward those goals.
