Goal Setting Is a Hamster Wheel. Learn to Set Systems Instead. | Adam Alter - YouTube
When you set a goal, you are in a failure state until you reached the goal. You will get negative feedback because you have not reached the goal. When you reach the goal it might be a big anti climax. Goals escalate as you don't get enough positive feedback and it does not say how to reach it.

Instead you should have a system of working with what you want X number of times per week X minutes. For instance write for 30 minutes 3 times per week. Eventually you will write 100 000 words.

Whether you have a goal saying "write 100 000 words" or doing the system, you will end up writing 100 000 words, but the system makes you happier as you are doing good instead of being in a failure state not written 100 000 words.
