Description
Chris Guillebeau specializes in helping people break out of the "box" of their everyday lives. His most recent book, The $100 Startup , explained how to create income on one's own terms and not necessarily abide by a 9-to-5, "work for the man" model. But while liberation from "the grind" is one step in pursuing a life of purpose, it's far from the only way. Indeed, genuine fulfillment typically requires a quest or challenge that is big and ambitious, that involves surpassing the limits most people accept as part of their boring, routine-filled lives and making an actual difference. Chris has undertaken a successful quest of his own, having visited every country in the world by age 35. But the quests or projects discussed in this book need not involve travel at all. What they do involve is commitment and progressive accomplishment, losing oneself in an accretive task-whether it be a physical journey, an artistic enterprise, a philanthropic feat, even an act of political protest. Chris has surveyed thousands who've undertaken such quests and really drilled down to discover how they went about it, the common mistakes, what happened when they hit the wall, and how they coped when the quest was over. His specialty is well-researched, easy-to-follow advice that helps readers bridge the gap between "impossible dream" and "everyday reality."
