I love your blog man!

How do you come up with this stuff?

Amazingly true. I'm not one of the "westerners", but I kinda envy them. I live in the poorest country in Europe, yet my "Need" set is fully included by the "Have" set.
Thanks for teaching me something ;)
I also think the "Want" set should always be bigger than the "Have" set (and I don't mean material things only).

First time I've seen your site. I wish I'd thought of doing this first, and was, you know, funny.

Anna said...

I don't know if that's totally true. A lot of us westerners obtain things that we want RATHER than the things we need.
I think that might bring Darwinism into the picture somehow.
?

Either way, Keep up the good work.

Myke said...

do you think maybe have should overlap want just a tiny bit? or is that too optimistic...

This is the graphical equivalent of Mick and Keith's line, "you can't always get what you want, but if you try, you get what you need."

At the same time, it seems that if you simply buy enough stuff, your HAVE circle will eventually subsume your WANT circle. Which is VERY encouraging!

This is just pure genius!
I watched trough the diagrams, just had to comment on this one, it has the idea and the message all in one.

How on earth can there be so much information in just few lines.
