Manifestos - Value to the Eye, Value to the Heart, & Value to the Mind

Today, I chose to post a blog about the value of manifestos in our modern times. This is by no means a comprehensive study – just a compilation of my favorites, with a snapshot & a link to where you can buy my all time #1 to hang on your wall ūüėÄ

So, what is the value, you might ask?

My answer is multi-faceted. ¬†First, I’d start with saying that without foundational principles and truth to build upon, the house you live in will not withstand the buffeting winds of circumstances, events, & distractions. Second, knowing why you believe what you believe is very crucial. ¬†Next, having a core theme/thesis to wrap your vision around, to anchor dreams to … let alone shape your legacy: ¬†that’s purpose. ¬†If you can sum things up in a manifesto, you’ve put words and images side by side, and are appealing to both your conscious and subconscious minds. ¬†Lastly, a manifesto’s value today is priceless in that it puts priorities ahead of urgencies, and long term thinking ahead of the next shiny (short term) object/distraction: ¬†You’ll notice that with the manifestos on my list.

To sum up, here’s my list (ever evolving and sure to grow!) of manifestos. ¬†I hope one, several, or all of them appeal to your mind, heart, & will/spirit!
