Summary

Wrecked is about the life we are afraid to live. It's about radical sacrifice and selfless service - how we find purpose in the midst of pain. It's a look at how we discover fulfillment in the least likely of places. It's about living like we mean it. It's a guide to growing up and giving your life away, helping you live in the tension between the next adventure and the daily mundane. This book is for us - a generation intent on pursuing our life's work in a way that leaves us without regrets.
Author Jeff Goins shares his own experience of struggling as a missionary and 20-something who understands the call to live radically while dealing with the everyday responsibilities of life. Wrecked is a manifesto for a generation dissatisfied with the status quo and wanting to make a difference.

Totally idealistic approach.

Nothing that can be followed in life, from the book. Author tries to give some vague african examples for happiness. Not relevant in today's world.

LOOKING FOR PURPOSE? Read this book.

Would you listen to Wrecked again? Why?

YES. I will listen again! Wrecked is good coaching on HOW to live. I need reminding, regular reminding. I will listen, am listening, again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wrecked?

The reason we do humanitarian work is to feel better about ourselves. Right?

NO philanthropy is not self-medication.

Compassion means, "suffer with".

"It will hurt a little, maybe even a lot."

We find purpose in suffering.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Goins – was your favorite?

Jeff's sister Marissa, her collage experience, wanting to find purpose and find it without failing in the process. I get you Marissa.

And Dustin in the chapter The Great Cliche.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Find yourself, the self you were meant to be.

Any additional comments?

Buy it.

Then, do it.
