A Fool in Love

In chapter eight
"Well, there I was, 'way off my ambitions, getting deeper in love every minute, and all of a sudden I didn't care. What was the use of doing great things if I could have a better time telling her what I was going to do?" [Fitzgerald, 150]

We often do this when we find someone we care strongly for. For some reason, our hearts tell us to drop everything, even if it would make us unsuccessful. In Gatsby's case, he wanted to leave Oxford to find Daisy. However, we learn quickly (as Gatsby did) that you need a mutual understanding if you are going to do something like this, a plan. However, in love or not, you have every right to follow your heart and your ambitions at the same time.
