...but that's not why we do it

A few days back my friend asked me: 'You must have thought of pros and cons before doing this? like risk-return?'.

I said: 'I should have done that, but we don't look for risk-return in everything. do we?'

Some investments are better without a return and sometimes we just like it that way. If we get a result it may never be as beautiful as it was.  On the similar lines, sometimes  things don't go the way we wanted but we feel happier. There are things in life we do just for sake of doing it and not for any return and these are the things which make us feel good. On lighter note as Richard Feynman said 'Physics is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it'. Well... this applies to many wonderful things in life including some relationships.
