I just don’t happen to be one of them. (Sorry.)
But you’ve heard of this guy.
He created the famous “hierarchy of needs.”
He also validated much of the way you think and act as school communicator… because he too believed we should concentrate on every individual’s strengths and gifts, not their shortcomings.
Pretty cool, huh?
To know that the renowned Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) held what you do in such high esteem; and not just me, your knucklehead friend in Holland, Michigan.
I thought you’d want to see how Maslow characterized “the common crossroad” we face.
“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.”
That sums it up well.
Not that I couldn’t have come up with something equally profound, you know.
“In any given moment we have two options: to get going on the task today or put it off until tomorrow.”
Yeah, I get it.
We’re all better off listening to him.
