The ecology of the goal

I once heard this idea, the ecology of the goal, and I always try to think of when establishing my goals or my client’s goals. 

What is it about?  

Very often, in order to achieve our goals we have to invest time, money, energy etc. The ecology of the goal is related to the secondary results/effects due to the efforts necessary for the achievement of the goal. The ecology of the goal can be a step in the process of goal setting. As soon as the goal is clear and ideally SMART, we can challenge the client on the ecology of the goal. We can ask who will still be next to them if they reach their goal? How is that making them feel? Can they see it as a desired result or they rather prefer to work again on the previous steps to see how to accommodate better this goal with all the efforts in the current life? 

I would like to have some feed-back on this idea.
