I see no reason to stop using yearly, quarterly and monthly goals. You can have goals for any length of time you want. I think it's just a matter of nomenclature, that if it's for less than about 3 months (or less than a year??) it's usually called a "project" in GTD, while longer-term things are called "goals".

I guess I figure I can use "project" for the whole range from things that will take less than an hour but in more than one step, up to multi-year projects.
Inability is an abstract thing involving comparison with alternate universes; it cannot be experienced.
