The Gandhiana Jones Project
By Joe Kelly
What if you could be the change you want to see in the world and have the time of your life doing it?
It’s time to shelve the outdated concept that a life of purpose and impact must be one devoid of adventure and fun.
Welcome to The Gandhiana Jones Project.
Author and professor Joe Kelly leads readers on an eight-week adventure to discover the four core principles to living a life of change—Values, Passion, Skills, and Service—and how to apply them for maximum impact both in the world and in one’s own life.

Find your purpose—and have fun doing it
With material adapted from Kelly’s change-makers university course, and his personal year-long experiment with “being the change,” The Gandhiana Jones Project is packed full of everything you’ll need for the journey, including lessons on self-growth and community development, research findings, and real-life accounts of individuals who have all found their own unique way to combine duty and delight (and earn a dollar) while making a difference. You’ll also find practical exercises and weekly challenges to ensure you won’t just be reading about how to create change, you’ll learn exactly how to unleash your true potential and leave your mark on the world—and have fun doing it.
So, grab your prayer beads and your bullwhip. This is going to be one heck of a trip.
