Join The Sabbath Manifesto! Slow Down Your Life In An Increasingly Hectic World

Posted in art, ideas, your take on... by aldorf on August 29, 2010

What it is?

The Sabbath Manifesto is a
creative project designed to slow
down lives in an increasingly
hectic world.

We’ve created 10 core principles completely open for your unique interpretation. We welcome you
to join us as we carve a weekly timeout into our lives.

The Sabbath Manifesto was created by a group of Jewish artists in search of a modern way to observe a weekly day of rest. The group are all members of Reboot, a non-profit group designed to “reboot” the cultures, traditions and rituals of Jewish life.

Special thanks to Lisa-Anne Auerbach, Nicola Behrman, Roger Bennett, Dennis Berman, Robb Bindler, Greg Clayman, Adam Clyne, Michelle Collins, Lou Cove, Noam Dromi, Joshua Foer, Dan Fost, Ken Goldberg, Ben Greenman, Alex Grossman, Craig Kanarick, Amelia Klein, Jenji Kohan, Elisha Levin, Jackie Miller, Liz Nord, Christopher Noxon, Dan Rollman, Steven Rubenstein, David Sax, Tanya Schevitz, Nathan Shedroff, Tiffany Shlain, Jill Soloway, Jessica Tully, David Ulin, Sasha Wizansky.

This project fits to a current entry that I read on Seth Godin’s blog “A Little Out Of Sync”.

Seth Godin: Quieting the Lizard Brain

Posted in ideas by aldorf on January 8, 2010

As Merlin Mann commented: “This is terrific.”

“What you do for a living is not be creative, what you do is ship,” says bestselling author Seth Godin, arguing that we must quiet our fearful “lizard brains” to avoid sabotaging projects just before we finally finish them.
