I am fascinated by the term utopia and bring that excitement to every role. Its etymology comes from Greek meaning "no place" and has a close relation to eutopia meaning "good place."  In English this pair is homophonous, creating a conundrum resulting in dropping eutopia and allowing utopia to reference a non-existent level of perfection generally agreed to be unattainable.  Over time the term has fallen out of favor in goal setting, preferring instead to set the bar for outcomes with a path where achievement can be instantly envisioned.  I consider this to be a great tragedy.  When goals are set that limit results to what is perceived from the outset to be attainable, then the possibility of aspiring to a unique resolution is forfeited.
