The contest to win the book is now closed and the winners have been announced. But don’t let that stop you from leaving a comment on where you would go or what you would do if you took a 1 year sabbatical. I’d still love to hear from you.
It’s Go Time
Today, September 7th marks the “official” launch of 1yearsabbatical.com. I’m really excited about today because in some respects it symbolizes the next steps in my life. There is an old proverb that states; “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” I like to think that this represents a new beginning for all of us every day. No matter what you might be going through or how you might be feeling; no matter what may have happened in your past, today marks a new beginning. In 10 months time I will be taking a 1 year sabbatical and moving to Indonesia with my family. Honestly I’m terrified by the prospect but I also know it is the right direction to be heading.
Two Free Books
So let’s celebrate new beginnings! And to celebrate in a cool way I am giving away 2 copies of Chris Guillebeau’s new book entitled “The Art of Non-Conformity: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World”, which is as of this post #9 on the Amazon best seller list. I was fortunate enough to get a preview copy of this book and I can tell you right now that if you have any level of dissatisfaction with your life and are wondering if there is something more out there, then you need to read this book. I enjoyed this book so much that I ordered several copies of it just to give to friends and family.
And now I am giving away 2 copies to new readers of this blog. This post isn’t a review of the book but I do want to mention that The Art of Non-Conformity blog and this book have had a huge impact on how I view my life, the things I want to do and the changes I want to work for in the world. It played a big role in my starting this site. I really feel that this book could have the same affect on you.
So here is what you need to do for a chance at winning one of two copies of this book. In the comment section below leave a comment about where you would go or what you would do if you took a 1 year sabbatical. I’ll do a random drawing and if it’s you that gets selected I will mail the book off to you. And for those who spin the wheel but don’t hit the free book jackpot I still highly encourage you to pick this book up (it’s less than $10 now on Amazon). It may just change your life and for less than $10 it’s a great investment in your future.
I’ll be randomly picking 2 winners of the books on Friday of this week. I hope it’s you!
