When a goal makes us unhappy.
It can happen that we have a dream, a desire, something that we really want to achieve, something that we think will make us happy.
But if we give it too much importance, we won't feel at ease unless we reach it, thus preventing ourself from being serene now, from enjoying what we already have.
And high chances are, that when we reach our goal, we won't be able to enjoy that moment too, because we are not accustomed to appreciate the present.
What I find useful in this case, is to keep a certain detachment.
Having a goal, doing what it takes to reach it, but knowing that everything is perfect just now.
