It's important to keep a general objective mentally in order to direct the journey in a productive path.
To me, this is like praying: mentally talking to myself, organizing what I am grateful for and what I want.
A physical objective is also an excellent thing to have.
I mean that when you do something in the external, the same activity is reflected inside.
Meaning that, something like "finishing a drawing" can be a good physical objective, as drawing can be a powerful exercise of focus both internally and externally.
