In 1943 Abraham Maslow published "A Theory of Human Motivation", proposing what he thought to be the most necessary elements humans needed in order to lead successful, healthy, happy lives.
A lot has changed in the world since 1943. So Charlie Kim, Founder and CEO at Next Jump, took it upon himself to modernize Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Here is Charlie's version:
Jane Austen, world renowned English author, had a particular talent for writing developed characters, many of them introverts. Beginning in 2016, 200 years after her novels were published, "good quiet Aunt Jane" -- as described by her family and friends who understood her private, introverted nature -- will be celebrated, quite publicly, on the reverse of the Bank of England's new 10-pound note.
Mary Anne Radmacher, author, artist and professional speaker, illustrates her personal definition of courage:
“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying: I will try again tomorrow.”

Paul English, co-founder of Kayak, on why ““:
“We’re known for having very small meetings, usually three people. There’s a little clicker for counting people that hangs on the main conference room door. The reason it’s there is to send a message to people that I care about this issue. If there’s a bunch of people in the room, I’ll stick my head in and say, ‘It takes 10 of you to decide this? There aren’t three of you smart enough to do this?’
I just hate design by consensus. No innovation happens with 10 people in a room. It’s very easy to be a critic and say why something won’t work. I don’t want that because new ideas are like these little precious things that can die very easily. Two or three people will nurture it, and make it stronger, give it a chance to see life.”
