"Gee, Brain. What are we going to do tonight?
The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world."
~ excerpt from Pinky and the Brain
World domination. A noble perhaps salacious gig if you can get it. Personally, I'll stick with attempting to dominate my tiny slice of it.
A big part of me is fascinated with the intricacies of scaling the mountain I've claimed as my fiefdom. The only problem was how would I do it. What were the steps to take me there? The avid treasure hunter in me burned with curiosity so I set out to learn the details of world domination.
I came across a manifesto to world domination by blogger Chris Guillebeau explaining the highlights of what I would initially need to do. Inspiration hooked me, yet I was missing one thing, an evil plan.
Now stick with me for a moment as I explain.
Anyone looking to take over a world, either the one we live in or the stock market, your local knitting club, stamp collecting, cooking, fashion designing or website design requires a set of 'evil' plans to make it happen.
Why call it that you might wonder?
Because everyone in your circle will think you're insane for considering it. For them it's impossible, unthinkable and hard, evil almost. And the funny thing is, everyone needs one.
What are these plans?
They are your secret dossier to joy. It's the blueprint to the life you want to live and the process by which 'next level' prosperity will find you. Evil plans are your way out of uncertainty and most importantly, it's the way out of drudgery and boredom of the life you now live. Many know this treadmill as the 'rat race'.
My evil plan is simple. Continue producing 'art' everyday, meaning writing and creating books, guides and products for 25,000 people in my fiefdom. That's all.
So I've pulled the trigger on the 'MojoMoves Evil Plan to World Domination'. It's my personal microbrand that flies under the radar of most people on the planet. No one knows about it and that's cool. It's how evil plans work. Silently, unnoticed as you go about your life while the 'plan' is nicely spinning, spiralling up and unfolding daily.
If you don't have your own evil plan I strongly suggest you get started on one.
Then the next time someone asks you what you're working on, smile a knowing smile and think, "...the same thing I do every day, trying to take over the world."
