Sometimes, we like to think that happiness is a goal that we’re all reaching for. However,actress and writer Rashida Jones suggests that approach isn’t really that useful.

Speaking with Wired, Jones breaks down her work schedule, thoughts on productivity and more, before ending with a note about the one this that helps keep her sane:

I try to remind myself that happiness is not the endgame. If your happiness depends on selling your company, snagging one perfect job, finishing the design for your perfect living room, you’ll never actually achieve it. And now that work and life have merged together, it’s doubly important to remember that you deserve to be happy all the time.

It seems like common sense, but it’s a nice reminder that the journey is just as important as the destination.
