New Year’s resolutions can be more of a burden than the inspiration they’re intended to be. On one hand, we take stock of all we had hoped to do this year but didn’t, and on the other, we wonder if we can muster the energy and perseverance to make things different.
They say that hindsight is 20/20, but what if we could apply this crystal clear vision and laser focus to the year to come? Instead of pinning your hopes on lofty, intangible goals, what if you used a proven set of tools to define your intentions and had the help of a creative community to map the path to them? What if – in short – you could design a year of wonder, delight, and healthy productivity?
We invite you to throw out your New Year’s Resolutions and to-do lists and join Quest2020 to experience a whole new way of envisioning change and elevating your work to live your most excellent life.
Sound familiar? Something has to give. Research shows that actually writing down your goals, creating clear benchmarks, and (better yet) sharing them can dramatically increase the likelihood that you will follow through and meet your goals with confidence. Our Quest is designed with this research in mind.
Quest2020 is a month-long online experience that will help you plan for a year of delight, wonder, curiosity, and creativity. These qualities can boost your sense of well-being, strengthen bonds, and ensure that you enjoy your work and life along the way.
More importantly, Quest2020 is about Doing-it-Together, not Doing-it-Yourself.
Don’t plan in isolation. Evidence bears out that one of the most effective ways to create healthier habits is to tap into the strength and support of your community. This December, you will be a member of a warm, smart-hearted community, where you can enjoy different perspectives, encouragement, and the kind of motivating accountability which will help you to create more positive habits and reach your most important goals.

How Does Quest Work?
Jeffrey draws upon his body of work and research from the past 15 years on the nature of experiencing and designing for wonder. The Quest experience aims to take you on a thematic adventure every week, providing you with the resources, practices, and tools to design your own wondrous life.

Why Did Quest Begin & Who Started It?
Five years ago, Tracking Wonder’s CEO, Jeffrey Davis, noticed that otherwise talented professionals, entrepreneurs, creatives, and workers stalled out on their visions after a few months or less of planning.
SMART goal-setting, vision boards, strategic planning – the old methods weren’t working.
So Jeffrey imagined a different approach – a community approach driven by inspiring visionaries. In the past few years, Jeffrey has invited visionaries such as Seth Godin, Krista Tippet, Jason Silva, Pam Slim, Jonathan Fields, Tara Mohr, and numerous others to offer imagination-blowing inquiries, questions, and instigations to fuel a wholly different approach to envisioning and living out a new year.
The results speak for themselves.
