From entrepreneur and lifestyle architect Chris Guillebeau, author of the New York Times bestseller The $100 Startup, comes a book about finding purpose in work and life by committing to a life-changing project or quest.
The Happiness of Pursuit helps you find real life fulfilment by undertaking a quest that is big and ambitious, that involves surpassing the limits most people accept as part of their routine-filled lives. Chris has undertaken a successful quest of his own, having visited nearly every country in the world by age 35, but your own quest needn't involve travel at all. What's needed is commitment and progressive accomplishment, losing oneself in a task - whether it be a physical journey, an artistic enterprise or a philanthropic feat. Chris has surveyed thousands who've undertaken such quests and identified
- How they went about it
- The common mistakes
- What happened when they hit the wall
- How their lives changed when the quest was over
The Happiness of Pursuit offers inspirational and practical advice to help you bridge the gap between 'impossible dream' and 'everyday reality'. Discover how your own quest can give you the self knowledge to find and live a more fulfilling life.
