Too much of X and not enough of Y

In this great talk by, my hero, Tom Peters he references the book Enough. by John Bogle and says that you need only read the table of contents to get the (powerful) message about the times we live in.  I say, totally true.  

I have posted it below. See if you agree:

Too much cost, not enough value.
Too much speculation, not enough investment.
Too much complexity, not enough simplicity.
Too much counting, not enough trust.
Too much business conduct, not enough professional conduct.
Too much salesmanship, not enough stewardship.
Too much management, not enough leadership.
Too much focus on things, not enough focus on commitment.
Too many 21st century values, not enough 18th century values.
Too much “success,” not enough character.
