The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau

The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau

The Happiness of Pursuit (2014) by Chris Guillebeau is a book about creating and pursuing complex, long-term, personal goals. Guillebeau’s own goal was to visit every country on Earth by age 35. He writes about his journey in detail and how he overcame challenges along the way.

In addition, Guillebeau describes the passions, pursuits, and quests of many others through storytelling and interviews. He talked with people who had committed themselves to many types of quests, including artistic, athletic, environmental, culinary, and interpersonal endeavors.

This book was a nice one for me to end the year with. It was full of inspiring stories about the joy of pursuing challenging goals and finding your calling in life.
