A Manifesto to Live By

I came up with a manifesto after reading “The Disciplined Life” by Richard S. Taylor:

“A Manifesto To Live By” by Josh Mudge

A ruthless elimination of the nonessential.

A rescheduling of the “urgent”.

A lack of care for “should”s and “could”s in the face of “must”s.

A surrendering of sins, worries, and regrets to God.

A surrendering of the twin gifts of pain and trouble.

A conviction to “buffet” myself when life is going well.

A conviction to enforce self-discipline, starting with the little things.

All for the glory of God.


I have a long way to go in holding to this manifesto, but it’s a start.
