When a goal is very well-defined, then it is quite easy to take steps towards the goal and conversely, when the goal is not well defined it is very difficult to take steps towards the goal. It is very helpful to know what the goal is. Just as the goal of the message of Srimad Bhagvatam is defined in Srimad Bhagavatam as asraya, meaning Krsna. Krsna is the svasrayasraya (Srimad Bhagavatam 3.8.29, Purport). He is the shelter of everything else that gives shelter. He is the shelter of everything, so the goal is Krsna's shelter.
