Intriquing question. I wonder what you were hoping to unearth?
As I see it…
Let me reframe these answers to say that if we chose a value driven life, then we are pulled towards our goals, like a sail in the wind. A value driven life, fully expresses who we are, and therefore of little, if any effort.
If a desire is not an intrinic value, and it is an extrinsic want, than we are doomed to always be pushing ourselves towards the goal, much like the unfortunate race horse, always being whipped to the finish line.
Having a clear picture of what we value, what we need to be a full expression of our unique gifts, and how we go about it in the world, makes the journey more enriching.
