“…If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open you mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often, getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion." 

I’ve been inspired by The Holstee Manifesto for many years and I have a poster of it on my wall to remind me whenever I need it. What’s your favorite line from The Holstee Manifesto?

Bu senin hayatın. Ne seviyorsan onu yap ve bunu sıklıkla yap. Eğer bir şeyi sevmiyorsan, değiştir. Eğer işini sevmiyorsan, bırak. Eğer yeterince vaktin yoksa, televizyon izlemeyi kes. Eğer hayatının aşkını arıyorsan, dur; sevdiğin işleri yapmaya başladığında seni bekliyor olacak. Fazla analiz yapmayı kes, hayat basittir. Her son lokmanı yiyip, değerini bildiğinde bütün duygular güzeldir. Aklını, kollarını ve kalbini yeni şeylere ve insanlara aç, farklılıklarımızla birleşiriz. Yanında gördüğün ilk insana tutkusunun ne olduğunu sor ve ilham verici hayalini onunla paylaş. Sık sık seyahat et, kaybolmak kendini bulmana yardım edecek. Bazı fırsatlar bir kez gelir, onları yakala. Hayat tanıştığın insanlarla ve yarattığın yeni şeylerle ilgili, bu yüzden çık ve yaratmaya başla. Hayat kısa. Hayalini yaşa ve tutkunu paylaş.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once; seize them. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and wear your passion.

2年前、台湾で出会った言葉。 また、台湾にいってきます。 —

これはあなたの人生です。

自分が好きなことをやりなさい。 そして、たくさんやりなさい。 何か気に入らないことがあれば、それを変えなさい。 今の仕事が気に入らなければ、やめなさい。 時間が足りないのなら、テレビを見るのをやめなさい。 人生をかけて愛する人を探しているのなら、それもやめなさい。 その人は、あなたが自分の好きなことを始めたときにあらわれます。 考えすぎるのをやめなさい。人生はシンプルです。 すべての感情は美しい。食事を、ひと口ひと口を味わいなさい。 新しい事や人々との出会いに、心を、腕を、そしてハートを開きなさい。 私たちは、それぞれの違いで結びついているのです。 自分のまわりの人々に、何に情熱を傾けているかを聞きなさい。 そして、その人たちにあなた自身の夢も語りなさい。 たくさん旅をしなさい。 道に迷うことで、新しい自分を発見するでしょう。 ときにチャンスは一度だけしか訪れません。しっかりつかみなさい。 人生とは、あなたが出会う人々であり、その人たちとあなたが作り出すもの。 だから、待っていないで何か作ることをはじめなさい。 人生は短い。 情熱を身にまとい、自分の夢を生きよう。 Quoted from  THE  HOLSTEE  MANIFESTO

I feel that it’s very important to credit the things I find whenever possible. So, when I once again came across this poster and decided I’d share it, I wen’t looking for it’s source. Through the power of Google’s image search engine, and with a little luck, I found out that this is called “the Holstee manifesto”. I also found an article in the Washington Post about it’s origin. Oh, what a little research can teach you…
