One of the pervasive misconceptions about mindfulness practices is that we have to release attachment to our goals or desires. Actually, having goals and desires is not something that we need to avoid. What we need to release is our attachment to the outcomes of these objects.

As I am fond of telling my yoga classes, there is no need to strive for a specific outcome, because the outcome is here now. This moment is the outcome, just as every moment is the outcome. So we set our intentions, and then release our attachment to how those intentions get delivered.
