Inherent Pleasures

I can’t even believe how much my life has changed since May. I still have the same job(s), I’m still married to Adam (forever), and we still feel at home here in Columbus. The changes? I probably freelance 2-3 nights a week, I workout now, and I actually use weekends to take a break. I really loved this quote (above) that I found on Swissmiss this week:

“Staying focused on our goals detracts from the inherent pleasures of the activities we need to pursue to achieve those goals.” – Christian Jarret

I read it and I smiled. I couldn’t agree more.

Can you relate? What helps you achieve your goals? Do you ever feel like focusing too intensely can be detrimental?
