I agree with Gaston, that setting your goal on a DA target is not the best approach.
I set my goals by deciding what content should be on my website to make it an outstanding resource to my potential clients (for a site that sells products or services) or my potential audience (for an informational site). What content would you need for your site to serve the needs of the visitors you desire to attract?
You can make a very ambitious content list that might take years to produce, or you can take it in stages - by topic. All of my sites were started over ten years ago. One achieved its content goal in two years. The others have a content goal for which the goal posts have been moved outwards every few years. I don't think about DA. I think about the next article to write.

On one hand, I'd advise against only looking to increase Moz's metrics. Keep in mind that they are a private measurement and they are trying to guess what Google's Search Algorithm might consider important to rank a website higher, looking (mostly) at backlinks profiles. You can find more information about Moz's metics here: Link Explorer resources - Moz Help Hub.
On the other hand, for higher rankings there are many things to consider, some of them:
- Creating high quality and engaging content.
- Making sure GoogleBot can crawl and understand your pages' content.
- Focus on answering the user's questions and intents, not just creating content for the bots or for the sake of creating content.
- Engage with users and other publishers to get your content shown, eventually, some links will point back to you.
- A tip: Analize your competitors' rankings and what they are doing to rank higher.
- Another tip: Focus on understanding how and with which terms your potential users/clients are googling. Then create content for those queries, don't forget the 1st point.
Also, there are many more recommendations and more detailed in these resources:

Hi. One of our competitors is ranking ahead of us on Google. Our site has a much stronger authority and much more quality links than this competitor. Would anyone have any explanations for this? Thanks
Hi Guys - I've noticed recently that one of our competitors is ranking extremely well on Google, while we seem to be fluctuating, along with other competitors, for our main keywords. Our site has a much stronger authority and much more quality links than this competitor and traffic is continuously increasing each month. Would anyone have any explanations as to why we may be seeing this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.Link Building | | barryhq0

in a number of social media sites including Houzz, but Moz acts like there's only one link to the site. DA is 1.
Ugh. She has pretty good traffic for a small local business, but I'm tearing my hair out over this.
My website has started from August of this year, but number of Domain Authority (DA) is 1 and has number "0" from root domains when i checked by moz addon on firefox. I find it very unusual and I am worried about it. does anyone can explain why is that ? My website is: https://adtvietnam.vn . I had 10 --> 20 keywords on page 1 of google.com.vn. p/s: i am really not good at english. i wrote that words by translate.google.com. I hope everyone can understand me and God i need your help ^_^Link Building | | lthanhthe5s0
We are in the process of launching a couple of new sites and while we know it will be a long process to get them to rank, achieving some long-tail keywords would be beneficial. What sites would you recommend for getting some easy links to start with that can help the indexation and ranking process along in the preliminary stages? Or another way to put the question - when you launch a new site, what steps do you go through?Link Building | | ukss19840
If I have 10 links coming from 10 Tumbler blogs.. Do they count as 10 linking domains or 1 linking domain coming from tumbler.com? Does the authority of links coming from tumbler decrease the more I get links from tumbler blogs? ThanksLink Building | | KevinBarnes0
