“Hindsights” Graduation Speech by Guy Kawasaki. This is a transcript of a high school graduation speech that Guy Kawasaki gave several times.  Unfortunately, I cannot find a video of it.  However, it is a great read.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.  When I was in business school, I wondered why Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs was brought up in almost every class from Management to Accounting.  Now I understand.  It is an incredibly useful tool for understanding and predicting both human and organizational behavior.

Steve Poltz.  Well, if you have made it this far, I would like to share with you a singer/songwriter who is an amazing on stage performer.  I don’t go out often when I am on the road.  However, if Poltz is in town, I am likely to be there. I have included links to two of my favorites below.
