Our Chief Preoccupation

A quote to chew on today:

"Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desires and his disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly" (St. John Eudes, The Life and Reign of Jesus in Christian Souls).

Is forming Jesus in myself the chief preoccupation of my days, and of my "religious exercises"?  It is the chief preoccupation of yours?  What stops it from being chief in our lives?
