Setting my goals for Shadowlands

25 days ago - Direct link

I haven’t really had a goal in retail goldmaking for quite some time. When I went into BfA I was doing my gold cap challenge and I was working towards that. I did not have many ambitions outside of that and I got a lot less out of the game than I could have. 

Targets help you focus

The main reason I want to set some goals is to help focus my effort and to get better. By setting my sight somewhere I have to make decisions that put me closer to my target.
