A few weeks ago I received an advance copy of Chris Guillebeau’s new book The Happiness of Pursuit (catchy title, no?). For those who don’t know Chris, he has a hugely popular blog and is a New York Times bestselling author, but he is probably best known for his goal (recently completed) of visiting every country in the world.
In the book Chris talks about the importance of finding quests that bring purpose and excitement to your life. He offers his quest to visit every country as an example, then weaves dozens more examples throughout the book where ordinary people turned a big idea and a willingness to act into a new adventure.

I’ve really enjoyed reading through the book and have been using it to outline a fun new quest for 2015 (more on that later this year). If you’re interested in living an intentional, meaningful life, I’d encourage you to check it out as well. In fact, I’m going to give you a free copy. Well, one of you anyway. My copy of the book is dog-eared and marked up, so I picked up another one to give away.
How to enter the giveaway? There are thousands of people all around the world who subscribe to the weekly updates at Intentional Retirement. In just the last few weeks we’ve had people sign up from as far away as North Pole Alaska, Norbury United Kingdom, and Quarry Bay Hong Kong.
I love hearing from those readers (that’s you!), so to enter the contest just go to Intentional Retirement and leave a short comment at the end of this post saying hi and the city you call home. If you’d prefer, you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s it. “Hi Joe! I’m reading this article in <insert city>.” I’ll pick one of you at random from the comments/emails and follow up with you to get you your free book.
Have a great weekend!
