How to identify and pursue life goals starting at a young age
About the Book
Are you a young person curious about how to make it in this world? Are you the parent, teacher, or mentor to someone in need of guidance? If yes, then this book is for you.
Exponential Happiness is the result of Judson’s journey across the world, exploring diverse lands, cultures, and careers. Through personal stories and dozens of actionable life hacks, you will discover how to:
- Define what “happiness” means to you
- Identify your life goals
- Create an actionable plan to achieve those goals
- Embrace failure as a learning opportunity
- Live a life without regrets
“Do it while you’re young,” a cliché thing to say, but not at all a cliché thing to do. Your life’s experiences are the outcome of the decisions you make. Pursue your goals as young as possible and enjoy a life of exponential happiness!

C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
