"Life is a continuous exercise in creative problem solving."
–Michael J. Gelb
He was born on March 31st, 1948, in the District of Columbia. His early education began in Washington, D.C. and after high school he went on to attend Harvard. He was a member of the student body during some of the most serious anti-war sentiment that was sweeping through college campuses around the nation.
“We lift ourselves by our thought; we climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always, everywhere – your ideal of what you long to attain – the ideal of health, efficiency, success.” Orison Swett Marden (1850 – 1924)
- He never attended college because of his mother’s illness and an accident in which he lost a number of teeth while playing hockey in high school.
