The Cult of Next Manifesto
- There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and next.
- Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get to the next thing.
- Done is not enough.
- Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just pretend you know what you’re doing and go to the next thing.
- Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, go to the next thing.
- The point of being done is not to finish but to get to the next thing.
- Once you’re done you can go to the next thing.
- Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from the next thing.
- People without dirty hands are wrong. Getting to the next thing makes you right.
- Failure means you can go to the next thing. So do mistakes.
- Destruction means you can go to the next thing.
- If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, you can go to the next thing.
