Goal vs User Actions

Goal is your destination, and actions are what you need to do in order to reach your destination. Your goal can be having a picnic at the Peak with your girlfriend/boyfriend tonight. To achieve your goal, you need to invoke a few use cases, such as "discuss with girlfriend/boyfriend", "invite girlfriend/boyfriend to picnic", "purchase picnic items", "arrange transportation", "prepare gift", and so on. The set of use cases will be your actions.
