Our friend, Frog Smart Gal Janna Johnson Garza turned us onto Bre Pettis, who, in collaboration with Kio Stark, has penned the Manifesto of Done — a treatise for our time. It seems the duo created the movement in 20 minutes, because “we only had 20 minutes to get it done.”
On a visit to his great blog, you will learn first that there are thirteen pegs to the Done Manifesto:
The Cult of Done Manifesto
- There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
- Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
- There is no editing stage.
- 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.
- Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.

A special from IndySocial:
The Draft Mellencamp for Senate Movement is officially underway and very much for real.
Since the notion was introduced by The Nation Editor Katrina vanden Heuvel earlier this week on an MSNBC morning show, and later in greater depth on The Nation‘s web site, thousands have joined impromptu Mellencamp for Indiana Senator Fan Pages on Facebook, and voices ranging from rock fans to professional politicians have signaled their support.
As of yet, no official comment from the Mellencamp camp. His web site’s news section is promoting an upcoming performance headlining Rock Fest 2010 in Cadott, WI on Saturday, July 17th and makes no mention of potential senatorial aspirations. Rock Fest is four day music festival.
The controversial leftist editor’s proposal that the scrappy Hoosier Rocker might actually make a viable candidate, and a palpable alternative to big-business-friendly Dan Coats, who is widely believed to be the Republican candidate.
Dear Eternal Circle Petition Signees,
There have been recent developments concerning the proposed Bob Dylan tribute art piece in Washington Square Park which required us to publish a new petition. Although we would love to still see an art piece erected in Dylan’s honor someday in Washington Square Park, the city is currently adamant about not allowing it to take place at this point in time due to various logistical obstacles. However, this opened the door to a new opportunity for us to propose a band shell/stage which is currently under construction, and its surrounding area, to take the name of “Eternal Circle” in Dylan’s honor instead.
Please take a moment to read and sign the new petition at:
Thank you very much for your continuing support!
Keep On Keepin’ On,
Indianapolis jazzer, singer/songwriter and owner of Hit City, Tim Brickley and the Bleeding Hearts remind us to stop, and celebrate the season. Xmas comes but once a year. Enjoy.
