    Would love to see this! I love Henry but I suspect we’d disagree some on this one.

    “Crisis” certainly gets more attention than “situation” or “context” or “developments.” We humans survived by risk aversion. Sales people know that you can motivate better through fear of loss than promise of gain.

    This was a great talk, although I must admit that it made me do a little soul searching about my academic goals.
