While I don't agree with the premise that a goal's valence should be determined by the process (i.e. was the Nazi's goal to exterminate millions a good goal because they planned the "best" way to kill millions with the least cost?). I really like the overall point of the article -which is that meticulously planning a goal increases motivation. It makes sense, but I've never heard of anyone overly state it. You've added a great insight into my goal toolkit. Overall wonderful article - Thank you very much!
