The Happiness of Pursuit

A sense of adventure and aspiring to new challenges is part of our nature. We love to explore and create, be it climbing a mountain, exploring at the bottom of the ocean, developing the iPhone and new apps that change lives, developing new medicines that save lives, or crafting policies that improve how we live.
