“How To Be Creative” downloaded 4.5 million times!

[UPDATE: Because I want peo­ple to see it, I’m kee­ping this as a pla­cehol­der at the top of the gaping­void home­page for a while. Scroll down to see newer stuff etc.]

My manifesto, “How To Be Creative”, is still the most downloaded manifesto on ChangeThis.com. The editors there recently told me that at last count, it’s been downloaded 4.5 million times.

If you want the more deluxe version, HTBC eventually was reworked, extended and turned into a hardback book, “Ignore Everybody”, which went on to become a Wall St. Journal Bestseller.

Four point five million. Wow. That’s a lot.

Thanks to everybody who took the time to read it over the years. It means a lot, Seriously.

[PS: I also have a second manifesto on ChangeThis, called "The Hughtrain". Check it out....]

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
