Recently, I’ve read 2 manifestos that have changed me in a very big way.
I’ve been hearing the name Chris Guillebeau from multiple friends, tweets, and blogs for a while now. I finally took a look into what he’s about, and to say that I’m impressed would be an under statement! I STRONGLY recommend checking out the following 2 manifestos (both free) and for taking a look at Chris’ blog – The Art of Non-Conformity.
279 Days to Overnight Success – Chronicles the story of how Chris started TAONC and also how he came to be a professional writer. If reading this doesn’t motivate you to awaken your creativity, then your motivator must be broken!
A Brief Guide to World Domination – Asks (and helps to answer) two of the most important questions you could ask yourself: What do you really want to get out of life? and What can you offer the world that no one else can? Taking the time to read this (and answer the questions) will help to open up some of the deep thoughts that you may have been putting off, and (like 279 Days) fans the creative flame that may almost be snuffed out.
I am very blessed to have been able to read and recommend these two manifestos. Chris is an inspiration to me to become a better writer and to really pursue some gigantic goals (such as his goal to travel to EVERY country in the world in the next 5 years). If you’re a struggling (or a wannabe, like me) artist/writer who needs a little motivation, than Chris is the guy to look to.
CHALLENGE TIME: If you’re going to read either of these, leave a comment below or send me an @message so I can hear your thoughts. Happy reading!
