What is Goal?
The state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates behavior intended to achieve it; "the ends justify the means"
“The difference between a goal and a dream is the written word”
Photo courtsey of GALA
I recently attended the 2016 conference of the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) in New York City. GALA is a nonprofit membership organization that advocates for the language sector by, in its own words, "creating communities, championing standards, sharing knowledge, and advancing technology."
As I live in Australia, attending the GALA conference required a large commitment of both time and money, including 24+ hours of travel and the cost of airline tickets, transportation to and from the airport, and lodging (not to mention time away from the office). Yet I was not the only long-distance traveler there; in addition to encountering other Australians, I met people from Argentina, Ukraine, Estonia, Canada, Poland, France, Italy, Geneva, and of course the USA.
