The Do Date Manifesto

What Is a Do Date?

A Do Date is a time to work on the things that have no due date; to give yourself permission to ignore the things you “have” to do, and instead do the things you want to do.

What you work on is up to you. Draw a picture, edit a blog post, write some code, read a book; whatever you feel is worth doing, do that.

The Tenets

  1. The goal of a Do Date is simply to do things. Nothing more, nothing less.
  2. Anything can be done at a Do Date.
  3. Enjoy each other’s company, but work hard to not disturb others while they are working.
  4. Anyone can organize a Do Date; there is no "leader".
  5. No one will be held accountable to complete the tasks that they plan to work on, or even to work on them at all.
