I’ve recently read The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. Chris inspires “unconventional people to do remarkable things” and one of the remarkable things he aims to do is to visit every country in the world. He has already visited 168 of the 193 countries and you can track his progress here.
Chris has written a wonderful manifesto “A brief guide to World Domination” and it’s really worth a read.
The essence of his philosophy is this:
1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect you to.
2. You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time.
3. If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will probably end up deciding for you.
4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something.
