A brilliant book on finding your riot, diving into uncertainty, and coming out on the other side with a life of purpose and meaning

Everyday People Change The World Everyday

We are dreamers. We want the world and our own lives to be different, but we've been taught to outsource change to elected officials and professional do-gooders. We’ve been conditioned to be social-media-swiping-spectators instead of active participants in stories that matter.

In his paradigm-shifting new book, Dillon 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 a “self-help-others” guide to a life that matters, demonstrating how any individual or company can repurpose existing talents, backstory, and networks to improve the lives of others. Changing the world no longer belongs only to martyrs and professional do-gooders. everyday people change the world everyday. All you need is a plan.
