The Fiasco Manifesto
I believe that to deliver your best work, you must work with the best people. This manifesto is a project Johnny Cullen and I have put together with some of our favourite collaborators.
What is this all about?
With this project I pledge to match the combined time it took the artists to create their works. With this time (approx. 8 hours per week for at least a month), I will aim to help, support, mentor and create ideas to help charities and individuals succeed with their causes.
Currently talking to explorer Johan Ernst Nilson who is in Nepal, to see how he can best use my time to promote his efforts. Johan was in Nepal building a school and planning two climbs, when the Earthquake hit. He is still there doing everything he can to help. If you haven’t yet donated, he has set up aHelp Himalaya campaign – GO!
With turning motivational posters upside down, Johnny and I want to promote the notion of failing better; getting up and trying again. And again. And yet again. In order to succeed, we believe in true determination, and in order to close that gap between taste and ambition – as Ira Glass explains – we need to be continuous and tenacious.
