Pursuit is important to men. Men love a challenge and going after a goal or a prize. This is the way we were designed. Pursuit is at its best expression in our life when we are going after a real purpose, a purpose outside of ourselves. Selfishness isn't a purpose because it destroys a man's pursuit. Selfishness will cause men to miss out on their ability to develop all of their gifts and make a positive impact in the world. Men need pursuit because it makes us better men and helps our society be positive instead of negative.
