Solitary Sought. Solitary Found.

Bell Canyon Trail with Santiago Pk  There is, I believe, a fundamental need that lurks in many of us. It's something that we don't usually talk about because, um, well, we've been trained not to talk about stuff that might make us seem odd, or different, from everyone else.I'll call this, simply, the need to be alone. Or more specifically, the need to be away from people, at least some of the time. Not just away from the assholes, or the obnoxious ones, just people. Yes, many of us, some ...

How Employers and Workers Can Thrive in the Freelance Economy

By Cheryl Cran When it comes to the future-freelancers will own the future of work. The rise of technology has enabled more people to create their life around their work. A ‘life-first’ attitude is prevalent among millennials and this is quickly impacting all generations as human beings seek to have a fulfilled life, not a ‘work-filled life’. With the increase of robotics and automation, the nature of work is rapidly changing. Jobs as we know them today will not be the jobs of tomorrow. Freelanc...

Do you have a self-actualized personality? Maslow revisited

Abraham Maslow was the 20th-century American psychologist best-known for explaining motivation through his hierarchy of needs, which he represented in a pyramid. At the base, our physiological needs include food, water, warmth and rest. Moving up the ladder, Maslow mentions safety, love, and self-esteem and accomplishment. But after all those have been satisfied, the motivating factor at the top of the pyramid involves striving to achieve our full potential and satisfy creative goals. As one of ...

Is Ambition a Good Thing? Thoughts on Striving Without Selfishness

Ambition is a concept that gets mixed reactions. Some people see it as the essence of progress, virtue and character. Those with ambition take action, set goals and build meaningful things. Without ambition, nothing would get done. In this sense, ambition is synonymous with vision, the opposite of laziness. Other people view it as the essence of corruption. Those with ambition take from others, cheat, swindle and are ruthless in getting what they want (especially to those who get in their way). ...

Fostering a Lust for Life

“Musicians must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write if he’s to be ultimately at peace with himself. What one can be, one must be.” ~ Abraham Maslow February is often thought of as the month of love. For some people this refers to romantic love, and for others, it might refer to love for a friend or relative. It can also be about the love — or lust — for life and living life to its fullest, which means listening to the messages of your heart and going in the direction of what...

A New Generation of Prigs, Prudes, and Squares

Oftentimes when young people look back on the period of the 1940s and 50s, they see themselves as completely different than those who came of age during that time. And in many ways, they are. The rising generations hold far more progressive attitudes on issues of race, sex, gender, and more, and see themselves as quite a liberated group. Yet in other ways, today’s teens and 20- and 30-somethings — Generations Y and Z — are in fact surprisingly like their midcentury counterparts. Today we’ll ta...

Våra digitala liv – dags att uppdatera Maslow!?

Det är nog få som har missat Maslow-pyramiden – behovstrappan från 1940-talet som förklarar hur våra behov prioriteras. Enligt modellen delas våra behov in i fem kategorier där behoven måste tillfredsställas nerifrån och upp. De tre första är våra basala behov. Om dessa är tillfredsställda kan en person sluta tänka på dem och klättra uppåt i trappan. De två översta nivåerna handlar om personlig utveckling och kan egentligen aldrig bli fullt tillfredsställda. Dessa behov kan existera samtidigt, m...

Digital Self: A Third Type of Self-Representation

The sense of mind and self is created by multiple social interactions with many others; particularly from those in our early psychosocial environment. These intimate interactions result in the construction of our personality. Personality becomes, in time, the consistent features of who we are in regards to our thoughts, feelings, and actions (which I refer to as mind , mood , and motor ). Around age 3, personality emerges. It is dynamically formed by multiple inputs from others, become...

Maslow’s Hammer is the Only Tool American Airlines Has to Fight Declining Customer Scores

During American Airlines’ earnings call this morning Cowen & Company’s Helane Becker asked airline President Robert Isom, “If you polled your customers what would they say is the #1 complaint about the airline, and what are you doing about it?” The airline's approach to unhappy customers – declining likelihood to recommend scores – appears to be to double down on the same approach they’ve been taking at the very time those scores have been falling.

Leo Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse: The Gift of Boredom

T he desire for self-expression is pretty high up on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. You have to have an awful lot going right in your life before it occurs to you to want more fun. That said, even a life that offers a roof over your head, food to eat, and safety from imminent peril can be flat, gray, and filled with despair, if there is nothing to feed your creative spirit and no sense that your life has meaning. This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is in Leo, which is called the sign of creativity; but ...

Money can’t buy love, but up to a certain level it is crucial to well-being. Health and relationships matter, and pursuing goals deemed personally worthwhile also impact well-being. While there are no formulas there are fundamentals that, when understood and applied, can improve the quality of being and integrate the roles and activities...

The Psychology Behind Instilling a Sense of ‘Home’

Home can be your childhood roots and the pizzeria around the corner. Home can be the house you grew up in and the familiar sights, sounds, tastes, and smells that are as familiar to you as the sun rising each day and setting each night. It can be the physical place you reside and the community it bestows.  Home can be the conversations with loved ones at the dinner table about anything and everything. It  can be talking with your friends over a cup of hot tea or coffee. It can be vacations w...

The One Competitor Marketers Underestimated

Looking back at 2018, there’s one competitor we underestimated this year. It’s slowly draining the attention of every human on the planet. It plays into almost all human needs — as they are defined by the Maslow Hierarchy. It’s the rectangular status-seeking device in your hands. That’s right. It’s your smartphone. Maslow’s needs start with the basics. Starting at the bottom of the pyramid, we all need food and water. Then safety. Next up is belonging, then esteem, then self-actualization. Th...

Did Marketers Underestimate Their Competition in 2018?

Looking back at 2018, there's one competitor we underestimated this year. It's slowly draining the attention of every human on the planet.

Maslow's needs start with the basics. Starting at the bottom of the pyramid, we all need food and water. Then safety. Next up is belonging, then esteem, then self-actualization.

Maslow, material needs, and the gospel

Maslow, material needs, and the gospel Earlier this year, Susan Mettes of Christianity Today critiqued the use of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as a ministry tool. The central idea of the hierarchy, as Mettes puts it, is “that physical needs must be met before people experience spiritual needs.” Mettes argues against such a dualistic perspective, and instead points out that the Bible places a priority on spiritual and eternal realities even as there is a kind...

Comfort Zones: An Alternative Perspective

Comfort zones. They usually get a lot of bad press. We’re regularly told that they’re something we need to “break out of” or “smash” in order to progress and grow as a human being. I’ve lost count of the number of meme diagrams I’ve come across depicting this. You know the ones, with the “where the magic happens” mentality. I don’t know about you, but I’ve found there’s something a little conflicting about the language used here. “Comfort” versus “break out.” Why would I want to break somet...

Maslow 101 PART 6: Why Seniors Don't Buy Your Ads

As people move into the higher levels of personality development they become increasingly “resistant to enculturation,” Maslow said. In the context of marketing this means that older customers tend to become less influenced by traditional advertising. Having seen and listened to tens of thousands of ads over their lifetimes it is not likely that you are going to come up with an ad that an older person views as startlingly... [Author: David Wolfe]

Requisite Course for Marketers to Older People: Maslow 101 PART 2

Sixty-two year-old Kathy Sparks is not simply a 30-year older version of her 32-year-old self. In many respects she’s a different person.

While conducting a workshop in 1996, the year the first boomers turned 50, I asked for two volunteers,... [Author: David Wolfe]

Now it seems that strong brand experiences activate the same spot. In fact, brands... [Author: David Wolfe]
