Four words that sum up the adherence to the Mandalorian creed. “This is the way.” These four words bind together this tribe of bounty hunters.

If you are a fan of the show, then you are familiar with the code that was launched in Season 1.

If you are not, here is the scene:

The Mandalorian armorer addresses the main character, “When one chooses to walk the way of the Mandalore, he is both hunter and prey. How can one be a coward if one chooses this way of life?”

She asks. “Have you ever removed your helmet? Has it ever been removed by others?”

When the main character answers both questions in the negative, the armorer replies:

“This is the way”

The larger group of Mandalorians in the room repeats in unison,

“This is the way”

This singular phrase got me thinking about the code lives by.

I’m inspired by the Baker Roofing Company. Their code is “Always Good Work.” In 1915, W.P. Baker hung a sign in his downtown Raleigh shop indicating they were open for business. That sign read “We shall do good work. At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always good work.”

My manifesto is now on my website, but I’m searching for my three or four words.

What’s your code or creed?
