On February 17th– just under a month from now– my second book, Evil Plans launches. It’s pretty much the same format as the first book, Ignore Everybody i.e. 18,000 words or so, plus 100 or so cartoons. Like it says in the intro:
EVERYBODY NEEDS AN EVIL PLAN
Everybody needs an EVIL PLAN. Everybody needs that crazy, out-there idea that allows them to ACTUALLY start doing something they love, doing something that matters. Everybody needs an EVIL PLAN that gets them the hell out of the Rat Race, away from lousy bosses, away from boring, dead-end jobs that they hate. Life is short.
Every person who ever managed to do this, every person who managed to escape the cubical farm and start doing something interesting and meaningful, started off with their own EVIL PLAN. And yeah, pretty much everyone around them– friends, family, colleagues– thought they were nuts.
Thanks to the Internet, it has never been easier to have an EVIL PLAN, to make a great living, doing what you love, doing something that matters. My intention is that by the time you’ve finished reading this book, you will completely concur. More importantly, you’ll actually feel compelled enough to go and do something about it yourself, if you haven’t already.
Writing books doesn’t interest me, frankly. EVIL PLANS interest me. My own and other people’s.
The why and how of EVIL PLANS is a conversation worth having. That’s why I wrote the book. By no means the definitive answer, but a good place to start.
Like I said, it has never been easier to have an EVIL PLAN. Therefore, to not have one is almost criminal. It’s not like any of us are living as 17th Century Russian Serfs.
Life is short.
