Joy First. Goals Second.

how much time do you allocate for fun and celebration?

In the past, I may have prioritized things differently but nowadays I put my joy and feeling good first. Goals and everything else come second.

Putting goals second might sound strange coming from a guy who made it his life's mission to pursue every big dream he had.
Strange, but not a contradiction.

From my experience, pursuing goals FROM a place of joy (vs. FOR joy) yields better results.

When we unchain our idea of happiness and joy from the goal process altogether, we tend to experience a true sense of freedom. Since our joy is not dependent on a particular outcome anymore, our fear of failure diminishes, and we're able to take bolder actions.

Better results. Less fear. Bolder actions. That's what I call win-win-win.
