Here’s the seventh in a nine part series looking at the Manifesto Manifesto principles with a view to creating your own manifesto.
Manifestos generate new meaning. They collect attitudes, align beliefs and provide a consistent worldview. This inspires new ways of being and new actions.
Five questions to ask yourself when you sit down to start writing your manifesto relative to creating the future…
1 Who do you want us to be?
Apple says ‘We Are the Crazy One’s and they want you to join them in pursuing your creativity and innovation.
2 What attitude do you want to promote?
Nike’s Just Do It is an attitude you can apply to your whole life.
3 How do you want us to act?
The Slow Movement wants us to take our time.
4 What values and beliefs do you hold?
Do you believe in God? Do you value racial equality? Do you favour freedom over tyranny?
5 What is true for you?
Google has a list of ten core principles that influence their culture.
