But I recently read a bunch of them here and now I'm thinking maybe I need to write one and post it to motivate myself.
Here's how my business plan starts:
"I write entertaining, fast reads full of humor and unexpected twists…or really twisted bad guys."
and how it ends
"Don’t forget: Have some fun!!!!!!!!"
which I thought was pretty good, but now I'm thinking in my manifesto I need to come up with some great statements like these:
"If you don't like something change it." The Holstee Manifesto
"Be boring. (It's the only way to get work done.)" Austin Kleon
"Do not feel absolutely certain of anything." Bertrand Russell
"Identify what's important to you." Leo Babauta, Zenhabits
"Go. Make something happen." Seth Godin
Things of my own I might add:
Shut up and listen to the world around you.
Shut up and really listen to those in your life....those who care and those who only claim to care.
Shut up and listen to your gut. Your heart knows what's best.
It's better to try and fail, than to squash your own dreams.
Safety can equal stagnation.
Tell me Killer Friends: Do you have a manifesto? What advice would you add to one?
