Chris Guillebeau just spent the last 10 years traveling to all 193 countries in the world (those that are part of the UN, at least). And he now faces a very important question: What's next?

And herein lies the challenge for us as leaders. Again, we must not only focus on what is coming around the bend, but we must also ask why it is coming.
We must have a reason behind our movement lest we confuse motion with progress (the two are incredible different). Your goal isn't merely to get somewhere; it is to arrive with purpose.
