10 More Insanely Awesome Inspirational Manifestos

    There’s nothing like a manifesto that gets the blood pumping, the ideas flowing and a person moving. I offered up several insanely awesome inspirational manifestos not too long ago, and I’ve scoured the Internet looking for more of them that can inspire people with different lifestyles and “workstyles” that they can relate to.

    Whether you’re a creative, an entrepreneur, an artist, a writer, or simply want to live a better life , here are 10 more insanely awesome inspirational manifestos for you to ponder…and perhaps live by:

    1. Austin Kleon – Steal Like an Artist

    Austin Kleon’s latest book offers 10 fantastic ideas that are spread throughout its pages. Steal Like an Artist is a tremendous read and a worthwhile addition to more than just a creative artist’s bookshelf. After all, it does hit the mark on what it says it is: A manifesto for creativity in the digital age.

          6. Clay Collins – The Alternative Productivity Manifesto

          I’ve been a follower of Clay’s work for some time, and this manifesto certainly resonated with me. I’m sure that plenty of our Lifehack readers can relate.

          7. Hugh MacLeod – How to be Creative

          The man who has tons of “Evil Plans” and suggests that we “Ignore Everybody” spells it out for anyone who wants to be creative but is stuck, well…not being creative.

              9. Seth Godin – Stop Stealing Dreams

              Here’s what the author says about this piece:

              “In this 30,000 word manifesto, I imagine a different set of goals and start (I hope) a discussion about how we can reach them. One thing is certain: if we keep doing what we’ve been doing, we’re going to keep getting what we’ve been getting.

              Our kids are too important to sacrifice to the status quo.”

              Well worth the read.

              10. JetSetCitizen Manifesto

              Finally, here’s one that fits the bill that my last post on manifestos served to inspire.

                The JetSetCitizen Manifesto, the brainchild of John Bardos (a fellow Canadian, no less), is summarized by its creator as follows:

                “A meaningful life does not come from crossing off items from a bucket list, getting stoned on exotic beaches, or getting stamps in your passport. Personal excellence is reflected in all the little decisions you make in your life everyday.”

                Indeed, John. Indeed.
