How to play this measure?

Hello, I am a beginner pianist and I have a question about how to play this measure. This piece is 4/4 in F minor. Since the note values add up to 5 beats in the treble clef (1/4 + 1/4 + 2/4 + 1/4) does that mean you play the last quarter note when the previous half note is halfway done? If that is the case, how would you play the last quarter note? I don't how it's possible to reach that last note.
