While goals are actionable and measurable with specific time frames, aspirations are the things that you want – like financial security and losing weight.
When you think about your aspirations, it’s your time to daydream to be able to think about all the things you want and only admit in your wildest, craziest dreams. You’re not looking to produce any tangible results. You’re just daydreaming.
A goal is something that you plan to accomplish within a specific period of time. Goals are concrete.
Aspirations are a strong desire to achieve something. They are more abstract and less measurable.
