The greatest four days of my life were when I attended the World Domination Summit in June 2011. It wasn’t the speakers or the setting, though both were impressive. It was because I had never before been part of a group of such mind-breakingly remarkable people.
I think creatives, dreamers and philosophers often feel alone. We stand outside the pack, different than everyone else. We have to fight against the current.
For a few joyful days, the outsiders were the current. If inspiration were wine, this was the vineyard.
Now I want to bring you inside.
Last year I excitedly pre-booked my ticket for WDS 2012. I did this knowing full well that I wouldn’t be able to go. Gods willing, I’ll be on my 8,000 mile walk when the World Domination Summit convenes this year.
So I want to give it away.
Two weeks from now, on Friday, May 4, I will draw one lucky winner and give them my ticket. Their admission to this sold-out, world-changing event will be absolutely free.
There are some conditions (always, right?)—
- World Domination Summit 2012 happens July 6-8 in Portland, OR. Only enter if you can make it there on those dates.
- By entering the contest you agree not to sell the winning ticket.
Sounds Good, Give Me the Ticket
Sure thing. Here’s how you enter:
Publish a blog post on the topic: Why Adventure?
Link it to at least one page on Rogue Priest.
When it goes live, email the link and your contact info to: firstname.lastname@example.org
What I’ll do:
- Curate the entries and post links to all of them
- Ignore any entries that come in after May 3 (CST)
- Use a random selection method to draw and announce a winner May 4
- Help the winner find lodging in Portland if needed
Adventure is a topic close to my heart. I consider it the ultimate spiritual practice. That’s why I want to highlight the dreams of others who adventure too (or want to). I can hardly wait to see what you write.
Adventurer or not, the contest is open to absolutely anybody. Even if you have very different views from me, if your post addresses the topic Why Adventure? it still counts.
I reserve the right to choose one favorite post and put it in the drawing twice. Other than that, it’s even odds for all entrants. Writing not your strong suit? Vlogs, photo essays and other styles of entry are welcome too.
Special thanks to WDS founder and chief executive rebel, Chris Guillebeau, for giving his blessing and encouragement to the contest. May the best adventurer win!
Please share, tweet and excitedly shout about this contest so more people know about it.
