Ok,  at this time of night I need to be clear what the diff is between 'purpose' and 'objective'

Plus I need a better way of saying "objective: to get the person to do xyz"
Xyz is stuff like, maintain their yard for fire season, remove their unregistered vehicle from the street .
Basically, take responsibility for it themselves so that we don't have to use enforcement orders.

Fun stuff!

Vaguely streaming here... would depend on context though? I'm thinking in some situations they are used interchangeably, where in others, you would say someone 'has a purpose' meaning like a goal in mind, versus someone who 'has an objective' which sounds a little like there is something more specific and smaller scale being taked about.
As for the above - could you use 'Aim'?

Objective - is the aim, outcome of what you want to do, achievable
Purpose - the reason you are doing it

ie

Objective - reduce the number of deaths from drowning
Install fencing - purpose:  to prevent children from accessing pool areas.
