Have you ever read Scott Adams book How to Fail at Almost Everything and still win big? The title is a bit much I think, but he explains really well what you are describing, a system rather than a specific goal. Once a goal is achieved the danger is that the thing that was motivating you is now gone. So I also believe in making these things a system. Its why I try and do things as simply as possible, so I can continue to do them, systematically.
Your English is good (assuming its not your native), thanks for the response as well, totally agree with you.
