This is your life. Do what you love and do it often – Holstee Manifesto

This is a great manifesto, The Holstee Manifesto. Print it and put it on your office wall or any other place where you say it daily.

Holstee Manifesto This is your life

Some remarkable lines in the Holstee Manifesto:

  • If you don’t like something, change it.
  • If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
  • Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
  • Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
  • Live your dream, and wear your passion.

The Holstee Manifesto can be found on their about page.

Holstee designs and curates with a conscience. Started in the heat of the recession in 2009, brothers, Mike and Dave left their full-time jobs to pursue their passion for a sustainable lifestyle through innovative design.

A company that has clearly answered the Why question before the What and How. (Start with Why).
Do you have a manifesto like this? Let’s share.
