Of course, all of these things can happen to you even if you don't pursue the quest. Life's not perfectly safe or certain in any case, so the presence of risk doesn't mean you shouldn't move forward. Don't be stupid, of course: prepare, plan, and mitigate whatever risks you can in as smart a way as possible, then jump in. There are always costs — count them. There's an old saying: "you can have anything you want, as long as you're willing to pay the price.
Those resources are finite, but most people assume big projects are impossible without actually sitting down and figuring out what the project will cost. That's a huge mistake. Consciously taking the time to research and calculate the true costs of the quest before you begin is both prudent and necessary. There are always tradeoffs — make them consciously.
What are you not going to do in pursuit of the quest? The bigger the quest, the more you're probably going to have to give up to accomplish the objective.
It's tempting to try to do everything at once.
That's a mistake. It's better to decide what you're willing to forego or postpone in advance than have the tricky tradeoffs forced upon you in the moment.
If you have more than one quest you'd like to pursue, pick the most compelling one. The others can wait for a while, ready to pick up after you accomplish the first, or if for whatever reason you decide your original quest is no longer worth pursuing. Persistence will correct many errors. Keep moving. Maybe your careful planning will prove unrealistic or useless. Maybe you won't budget enough money. Maybe you'll make a decision that proves to be unwise.
Maybe you'll realize you're in way over your head, and don't know how to proceed.
Maybe you'll experience unexpected setbacks or resistance. You'll make a ton of mistakes — that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes. The bigger the quest, the more things that can and probably will go wrong.
Don't use your mistakes as reasons to give up: use them as opportunities to learn and adjust along the way. Persistence will overcome many obstacles. Think big, plan big, act big. Most people think too small. Even daydreaming about huge projects can feel intimidating: it's tempting to avoid taking on big projects because they feel "too big.
If you start to feel uncomfortable with an idea, you can always tell yourself: "It's only a list! Giving yourself explicit permission to think bigger than you normally think opens up a lot of potential opportunities you'd otherwise gloss over as "not realistic. Every quest will change you forever.
Every quest you undertake will add to your life experience in unique, valuable ways. Regardless of the subject or objective of the quest, you can expect improvements in your self-confidence, skills, and maturity. Your experiences will change you in deep ways that'll be difficult to explain to other people, and you won't be able to go back to doing and seeing things the way you used to.
Here's one of my favorite passages from the book, which appears on page "Perhaps the biggest adjustment to life at 'home,' wherever home may be, is understanding that you're different from when you started. You've gained experience and seen things that others haven't. To quote the words of Steve Kamb, who used the analogy of a video game with me in describing his quest, you've 'leveled up.
