Byproduct goals?

Why is it that we reach byproduct goals -that is, goals that are a natural byproduct of attempting to reach another goal- faster than we reach end goals?

If we were to purposefully force our initial goal to be a byproduct goal of something else, and then completely ignore the byproduct goal in pursuit of the end goal, would we reach that byproduct goal faster?

Should I add this to the time-out strategies list?

Hmmm…
