What's the difference between a product vision and a product goal?

October 12, 2022
A goal moves you toward your vision.

What are your thoughts?

My short answer: A vision is a long-term guiding principle. A goal is a short-term specific thing to help you achieve that vision.

Example:

Product vision: Take over the world!
Product goal: Attach laser beams to the heads of sharks.
