It sat on my shelf months after I bought it. It’s only very recently that I actually started reading it.
“The Happiness of Pursuit” by one of my favorite authors, Chris Guillebeau.
It’s a book about finding and doing the quest that gives purpose and meaning to your life, even if it doesn’t make sense to others.
After all, we are all the heroes and heroines of our own stories—of our own quests. It’s up to us whether or not we will actually embark on each of our own quests when we have finally found it.
I’m starting two quests, actually. One is the quest to make this blog work, meaning to make this blog my full time work and reclaim my freedom. The other, which became clear to my mind only very recently, is to build 1,000 houses for 1,000 families. Makes sense to you? Feel free to join me!
Big quests? I know. I don’t even know when they are going to be finished or when I'm going to build the first of one thousand. It may take a long while. But, the important thing is that my quests give me fire and purpose.
How about you? What’s your quest? It doesn’t have to be big or grand or even charitable. But, it has to make sense to you and wake you up each morning burning with purpose and passion. When you find it, don’t hesitate to take action.
Find your quest and embark on it.
