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 listeners 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.

Inspiring story, but mistitled
I enjoyed listening to this book. Justin's passion, commitment, hard work, and success are impressive and inspiring.
I think he genuinely wants each of us to change the world in our own way. He says that frequently. For me, it was lacking breadth of examples and specifics on how. It was more of a memoir of his work to end slavery.
I'm glad I listened. I'm impressed and inspired to tackle something big. I wish the title had been more aligned with the content.

EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK
This book answers questions we secretly ask ourselves about meaning and life. It instructs without taking away our choices, and it points out human shortcomings with incredible compassion and understanding, all while pushing us to be and do better.
