The problem with being purely goal-oriented

The problem with being purely goal-oriented

Postponing your satisfaction until you reach your destination, or making your happiness conditional to goal-achievement is one of the quickest ways to unhappiness.

The best possible result you can hope for is fleeting satisfaction.

Makes a lot more sense to attach your happiness to the journey and your attitude during that journey.

One way to do this is to focus on building good mental and emotional habits. Try it and see for yourself. 

The benefits of good habits compound over time and almost always exceed our expectations both in terms of outcomes and the enjoyment that comes from the journey.
