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.

Late last night or early morning, depending on how you look at it(I blame the mice that have been keeping awake to daylight)...I found this, "The Cult of Done Manifesto" I thought it was pretty helpful, with what I am supposed to be working on right now. Numbers 2,5,6,7 & 10 seemed to hit me in face last night. I like deadlines but I always wait till the very last second to start anything. No matter what it may be, or even how prepared I am. I felt like this was something I could identify with and thought I would share it with others in case you are stuck on something. Here is the link to the site from which it came from:
