The previous posts informs us that as humans we are born with certain core needs. The previous posts took time to make sure we distinguish our core needs from our learned wants. Over the next many posts to come, I will define and give information related to our basal, deeper, and higher needs. As I discuss the various needs I will indicate the chapter in the book, “Balanceology: The 4 M’s of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation”, where that need is thoroughly detailed. I start this presentation of core needs in the next post with our basal needs.
