Short-term goals must be consistent with mid-term goals and long-term goals, but they need not be steps in a stairway. They can be for stand-alone goals. A family vacation is such a goal.
In contrast, if you want to write a book, your short-term goals are cumulative. These are important for the achievement of a longer-term goal. These might include writing several chapters or starting a blog site that could later be used to create chapters.
These goals, like your other goals, should be written on 5 by 8 note cards. On the each card, write down why this goal is on the list. Also include measurable criteria for future evaluation. Review these cards four times a year.
