From my points of view as a performance management practitioner: A goal describes what you want to accomplish. A key performance indicator (KPI) monitors progress towards a specific goal. A target is the value of a KPI a defined moment in time.

I was thinking about the comparison between a goal and an objective. It is interesting to see how goals and objectives are involved in common business practices. For instance, a "vision" is a top-level goal, which is then formalized in a form of a strategy map, which is actually a set of objectives.
