How to set and achieve long-term goals?

I would like to make a 5 year plan, then basically stick to it. I am not so good at that.
I get that to achieve long-term goals you basically to form short-term habits. And I'm actually pretty good at doing that. For example, I started working out a couple years ago (more seriously one year ago) and have really stuck with that and gotten pretty proficient at my sport at stronger and so forth. But I didn't start with any particular goal. I didn't want to lose weight or reach a certain milestone in my sport. I just wanted to get a habit of exercise and I did that. So what are some tools/websites/strategies when thinking about things like, buying a house in 5 years, or having a certain career in x years, or making a film or writing a book or whatever else requires steady effort and commitment over a period of years to achieve a specific goal?
