There is a difference between a leaders goals and priorities
“People know who they are, but other people try to force them to be what they’re not. As a result, they’re miserable. They’re unhappy. They’re frustrated. They’re often angry. And I’ll tell you what our role is, I believe is to free the person to be who they are. And if they say I’m not a goal setter, don’t force them to set goals. If they say I’m a problem solver, well, let them solve problems.”-Bobb Biehl

“Well, a lot of people feel, or teach, even, that without goals, you can’t get anywhere. That’s nonsense. A lot of people feel like to be a leader, you have to have goals. That’s nonsense as well. They feel like, well, you can lead something, but you can’t be a president, or a senior pastor, or an executive director, without having goals.”-Bobb Biehl
