A few months back I was browsing the Internet for inspiring quotes and was delighted to come across this enlightening manifesto. I got it from Brain Pickings, a blog created by Maria Popova, dedicated to offering people an eclectic bank of information on everything from poetry, to science, to art. The purpose is to help arouse people’s passions and help them find what piques their curiosity and interest.
The Holstee Manifesto comes from Holstee, an organization that sells products made of recycled things. The three founders quit their jobs and decided that they wanted to do something different, to be creative and innovative. One day during the company’s infancy they sat on the steps of Union Square and wrote out what was most important to them and what they wanted to get out of life. I hope you find their Manifesto as inspiring as I do, it’s one I often meditate on. Happy Wednesday!
