    without correct determination of goals

    Hello,
    One of my students, preparing a persuasion map on the topic 'Careers', used this sentence:
    'Without correct determination of your goals, hard work and development of your skills, your success is not possible.'
    Is it OK to say 'Without correct determination of your goals'?
    I would say 'Without setting right goals'.

    Thank you in advance.

    I don't see anything wrong with the statement, although I might be inclined to insert "a" before "correct".
