How do you differentiate a goal from objective?

People do set goals and objectives in life. This topic is one of the best topics taught in my nursing course, but even until now, I noticed some people who don't know how to differentiate them. I don't think it's difficult, but I would like to know other people's ideas.

Mmm, no it makes more sense that the goal is the long term longer larger task. Think of it like a ladder: The top of the ladder is the goal you want to reach, and each individual step is an objective. Also, use this more realistic example: A person has a goal to be an astronaut; in order to become an astronaut that person needs to complete many smaller objectives, like becoming physically fit, intelligent, etc.
