The Nametag Manifesto -- Chapter 17: The End of Insecurity

[ View the infographic! ]

"Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto: 

17. The End of Insecurity
If everybody wears nametags, worldwide confidence increases.

We’re all valuable enough to have a name, have an identity and have a voice. And we don’t feel silly, because everyone else wears a nametag too.

Instead of being left out of the club, now we all feel like we matter. There is an overall increase in self-esteem and self-worth.

Ultimately, the more we practice being okay with ourselves, feeling at home in our own skin – and the more we have an audience to watch us – the more we know and like who we are. Life without witness, isn’t.

If everybody wears nametags, no more insignificance, no more complexes about mattering and no more embarrassment.
