a question for writers

All of you who write--professionally or not--what are your goals for your writing?

I've managed some of my goals: 1) sell a story and 2) sell a novel. "Get better at writing" is of course always going to be a goal.

But at the moment I seem to be living in the short-term:

1) finish manuscript, send to editor.
2) make notes for novel #2.
3) prepare at least one more proposal for agent to send out.

Sometime next year, I need to make a website for the pseud, and possibly get her some business cards, while working on the second book.

But after that, what? Aside from "write more books." That's all I really want. To be able to keep writing novels, and have people buy them.
