How to Write a Manifesto

Hopefully, if you’ve been following this blog some of my enthusiasm for manifestos is beginning to rub off. And, ideally, you’re ready to write your own manifesto.
If need some more convincing, here’s 17 reasons why you need a manifesto.

This bring us to the rather obvious question: How do you write a manifesto?
From my experience, the quickest, easiest and simplest way to write a manifesto has two steps:

1: What are you talking about?

The first step in how to write a manifesto is to define your context, topic or domain of life that you are creating a manifesto about. Is it football, climate change or land rights for gay whales?

2: What’s important about this?

The second step in how to write a manifesto is to document what is important about this. The simplest way to do this is to define the 5 principles, 7 essentials or 9 critical actions. How many you have is not critical.

Simple Manifesto Examples

The classic manifesto example is the Ten Commandments from The Bible. The context is the Christian way of living. And it provides ten rules or principles for living this way. It’s simple, it’s easy to follow and in this case, it’s timeless.

Here’s some other examples of the Simple Manifesto:
