What will you do to get what you want?
Does the goal always justify the means? Many people are convinced that the only thing that matters is achieving a goal, no matter how.

Every participant considered the question of what they would be able to do to get what they wanted. Is there really something worth giving life for? Will the goal make us happy if the cost is too high?
