A Quote from Abraham Maslow

Every so often, I come across a quote that hits me smack in the forehead. Ouch!

I’ve been reading Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow by Chip Conley and when I hit Part Four, I went, “Ouch!”

In the introduction of Part Four, Conley includes this quote from Abraham Maslow:

The difference between the great and good societies and the regressing, deteriorating societies is largely in terms of the entrepreneurial opportunity and the number of such people in the society. I think everyone would agree that the most valuable 100 people to bring into a deteriorating society would be not 100 chemists, or politicians, or professors, or engineers, but rather 100 entrepreneurs.

If you’re an entrepreneur, know that you have the grand opportunity to improve society and make a real impact on our everyday lives.
