The Washington Post describes the Holstee Manifesto as the ‘Just Do It’ for a new generation. Always focused on outstanding design, the manifesto serves as the business plan for the innovative Holstee company. It’s definitely inspiring.
Created by the company founders on the steps of Union Square, they pieced the manifesto together to capture the emotion of quitting their jobs to take on their new adventure. The time capsule of optimism they came up with resonates with many of us; the manifesto has been viewed by over 60 million and shared online over 500,000 times.
The Holstee Lifecycle Video was recently released to complement the written version. It communicates the uplifting manifesto message using the humble bicycle. It works extremely well. Enjoy.
The Holstee Manifesto has inspired others to create their own. It’s a type of goal setting that works on a different level than simply scrawling a list on new years day. If you’ve ever struggled to stick to your goals or find that they just don’t add real meaning to your life, they try these ideas:
- Vision Board: build a visual display on a LARGE piece of cardboard covered with the things you want to fill your life with. Positive images of beaches, businesses, friends, whatever you can imagine that makes you happy.
- THE Life List: Document the important things you want to experience and accomplish in your life, and the way you want to live. Keep each one brief; avoid wordiness.
- Visualize: Take time to stop everything else you’re doing each day to read and absorb your manifesto. See yourself doing and achieving the things that are important to you. This helps to guide you decisions and actions to take you closer to your goals.
