Savings goals vs. earning goals?

Prior to the start of the new money classes, I set a goal for how much money I wanted to own, and created a weekly savings plan to get there. Now I’m thinking that if I shifted focus to an earning goal that the savings goal would mostly take care of itself, and with a lot less trouble because I’ve stretched my current earning out to a very fine line in order to be able to reach the savings goal. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
