Publisher's Description

You are exactly what the world needs

What if your search for meaning could solve the world’s problems? What if everything you are passionate about could save a life or change history? Justin Dillon argues it can, and A Selfish Plan to Change the World shows how.
In this paradigm-shifting new book, Dillon--the founder of Slavery Footprint and Made in a Free World--reveals the secret to a life of deep and lasting significance: the discovery that our need for meaning is inextricably linked to the needs of the world. A Selfish Plan to Change the World delivers a revolutionary method for meeting both needs.

Drawing upon his own unlikely transformation from touring musician to founder of a global movement and telling the stories of other surprising world-changers, Dillon shows how to create a life of deep purpose by stepping into the problems of the world. Taking readers on a journey from sweatshops in India to punk rock concerts in Ireland, Dillon exposes the limitations of the "giving back" approach involving donations and volunteerism to reveal the unexpected power of "giving in" to pursue self-interest in a way that alters the very dynamics of the world’s most challenging problems.

A Selfish Plan to Change the World is your "self-help-others" guide to a life that matters, demonstrating how you can repurpose your existing talents, backstory, and networks to improve the lives of others. Changing the world no longer belongs only to martyrs and professional do-gooders. You can live an extraordinary life. You can change the world. All you ever needed was a plan.

Editorial Reviews

'Dillon channels the heart cry of a generation who want to live lives of meaning and hope, but don't know how. With an artist's craft, he draws the reader in through stories of everyday people who have found a way to live their soul dream. He invites us to consider how in giving we will gain, and to join a global tribe of doers, not talkers.'

    Doing good for selfish reasons is okay.

    This book is all about using what means you have to change the world. Justin Dillon, founder of Slavery Footprint, argues that you don't need much to change the world, just your passion for a cause, and whatever resources may be available to you. Changing the world is for everyone.

    How to change the world...big question. Dillon suggests asking yourself: what bothers you? What do you think is broken? Finding these issues that really tug your heartstrings and make you angry is the starting point. Dillon states, "When you say, 'I wish someone would just fix it,' there's a good chance that person is you."

    As I mentioned before, Justin Dillon created slaveryfootprint.org, a website where you can find out how many slaves it takes to provide the things you use everyday. As much as we like to think that it is a thing of the past, slavery is still rampant today, and Dillon is working to stop it.

    Dillon also argues that changing the world is selfish, but it's a good kind of selfish. He says that we do good to make ourselves feel better, and that is okay. It is okay to do good for selfish reasons.

    I found this book to be very inspirational and entertaining. It is always great to see examples of people doing great things with what they have. Dillon had a very friendly tone in his writing. I actually laughed out loud at a few of his footnotes. Overall, I gave this 4/5 stars.

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
