Exactly what I mean. I watch a lot of sitcoms and noticed the lack of a well defined goal, which I why I asked this question. I have realized that the goal may not be saving the world, there has to be something in the plot to keep the story moving. The push can come from a character's fear, greed, humiliation, revenge, natural disaster, government's fall, terror attack, infection by a skin scarring bacteria, past affair, anything that makes the character 'wake up' the next morning.
Have a nice day
