An unexamined life is not worth living

This statement is attributed to Socrates. How it resonates with us at my manifesto! It is a powerful statement and as with many such statements, it has many implications.

Laser Direction

We really thought about who would greatly benefit from the my manifesto experiences but might be challenged by the time involved or potentially deterred by the financial outlay required.
