“I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the years'.” ~ Henry Moore
Maslow ranks human needs as follows: (1) physiological; (2) security and safety; (3) love and feelings of belonging; (4) competence, prestige, and esteem; (5) self-fulfillment; and (6) curiosity and the need to understand [Source: Microsoft ® Encarta ® 2008].
Ironically, the last Maslovian need occurs by letting go the three that precedes it.
On the other hand, I assume that my readers are (relatively) okay with the first two needs. There is no competition of argument when it comes to basic needs. You can’t think straight if you have not gotten your basic needs straightened.
Come to think of it, you shouldn’t be reading blogs if you’re hungry, cold and dodging bullets. Go tweet, instead.
I close the year with 21 of the year’s hottest posts, using the Maslovian levels of hierarchy as topic.
