The Lowdown_Comeplete your ideas : The cult of Done Manifesto

So contributing Indigos of the blog including myself have been M.I.A. for a week or so now, a lot of brainstorming and swimming have been in the mix lately. Closing up the summer Collectivus is gearing up to head into a more productive and active direction. We want to hear from more of you! About the conflicts and questions and crisis you deal with as a human an artists so that collectively we can create projects that inspire one another in our invididual endevors. The more we see whats around us and how we are all connected to each other the more we can me conscious in the energy we put into our projects. Here is a manifesto written by creators of the “CULT OF DONE”. We like the idea of a cult of people who encourage each other to actually complete those grand and not so grand ideas in our heads.

This manifesto was written by Kio Stark and Bre Pettis in 20mins, the amount of time they had to get it done.

The Cult of Done Manifesto

  1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.

  2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.

  3. There is no editing stage.

  4. Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it.

  5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.

  6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.

  7. Once you’re done you can throw it away.

  8. Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done.

  9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.

  10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.

  11. Destruction is a variant of done.

  12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.

  13. Done is the engine of more.

    Hope you all take these to heart and lets get great things DONE.
