“The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals, the tragedy lies in not having any goals to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It’s not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideas, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach.” Dr. Benjamin Mays

It is good to have goals, but goals could disappoint us if we leave God out of them. 
There is no point in making plans as though God does not exist because the future is in His hands. 
The beginning of good planning is to ask:
 "What would i like to be doing 10 years from now? 
One year from now? 
How will i react if God steps in and rearranges my plans?". 

We can plan ahead but we must hold on to our plans loosely.

If we put God's desires at the center of our planning, he will never disappoint us. (James 4:13-16)
