1.  Joe is at the annual Christmas party for his company.  He is a mid-level manager and has been with the company for six months.  His boss is very ego-driven and is very demanding.  Joe has always been considered the “life” of any party he attends and always gathers a crowd around him at such events.  As Joe walks in, his boss just told a joke and everyone laughed.  Joe says, “I have a better joke…” and proceeds to tell it of which EVERYONE laughs twice as hard than the previous joke by his boss.  Joe is violating what Greene law and why?

2. Steve Jobs was a brilliant showman.  Once or twice a year he would hold a press conference and announce a new product that would take the world by storm.  At almost every event he would say this line: “I have some wonderful products to show to you.”  What Greene law did Steve use in these presentations to show the world how great HE was? 

3. Frank’s list of things to do is getting VERY long.  He feels exhausted and overwhelmed by the things he has to do and cannot see the end of the list because there are simply not enough hours in the day to do everything.  It is so bad that his boss is frustrated because he is very inefficient and is contemplating firing Frank.  What Maxwell chapter should Frank read and within that chapter what concept should he embrace and why?

4. Jeff has developed a new electric engine design that has the potential to be revolutionary.  However, in order to save time, he does not build a prototype.  He meets with potential investors in order to start to build his engine and company.  However, the investors are not impressed with his design because they have nothing to touch, hear, or demonstrate because everything is on paper.  No one gives him money.  What Greene law should Jeff use to get people to invest in his engine and company?
