Startups Try Harder.

I wrote this as a staff member of the' 65 Denver Thomas Jefferson High School yearbook, 5 years before Robert Townsend wrote the best selling "Up the Organization" about learning in 2nd place. "We try harder" is how CEO Townsend put it in the headlines of the ads for his #2 Avis (Hertz was #1 in market share.)

But throws fall short,
And scores come too late,
All teams can't finish first.
Learning is second place.

Wikipedia Article: "Entrepreneurship."

Have you read the Wikipedia article "Entrepreneurship"?

It's a real mess. If there are now 6,000 professors of entrepreneurship across the US now, as Carl Schramm claims in his book "Burn the Business Plan," why hasn't something been done about this? What other industry is so poorly described on Wikipedia?

Here are the references for the statements, most statements, on the Wikipedia article. Which should be purged for one reason or another? What's missing? I'd be very, very interested in your thoughts on this. Thanks!

OODA Loop and Meditation

Personal PrOcessing Guide           Dr. Robert Langs’ “Decoding Your Daydreams” Made Simple.

EMERGENCY? CALL 911. Not to be used without first talking about Personal PrOcessing with a therapist, spiritual director, or friend you like and trust, someone who knows you well.

This is a brief introduction to a technique, a new way of what could be called meditating, developed by a very well known and influential psychotherapist, the late Dr. Robert Langs, MD. What Dr. Langs called “self-analysis” and later “self-processing” and that I am now calling Personal PrOcessing, is a way to access (Observe) your HP, what Langs called “your deep unconscious wisdom system.” It could be called self-directed psychotherapy.
