We humans, like all species, have needs. Our tip-of-the-tongue list of needs usually begins with food, clothing, shelter, safety, relationships, and money. Of course, the order and intensity of our needs shift depending on circumstances. And although our needs may feel expansive and endless, Maslow and others have identified a relatively short list and order of our individual and collective needs. Notice, I use the word ‘needs’ and not the word ‘wants.’ Two very different words with very different meanings and consequences.
