Focus on the journey, not the destination

I quote from Greg Anderson:

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

How often have we become fixated with the end goal, but fail to understand the initial reasons behind achieving it? For example, if you have a goal of earning $x million in y years time so that you can enjoy life in the future, does that mean you should have a horrible life until you reach your goal?

We should always enjoy the journey of life because all the journeys that we take are unique. It's being carved out depending on the choices we make. Reaching your goals bring purpose to your life, but it shouldn't result in you ignoring what's happening around you. Who knows... You might have reached your goals in ways that you've never expected if you notice what's happening around you.
