Anyone who has worked with me knows that I abide by a few fundamental principles that I often apply to various situations and problems. Several of them have served me well for a long time. They come to mind in situations that are reminiscent of previous experiences. These principles are rarely themselves the ultimate solution to a problem, but they always offer insight into how to find a solution.
I am going to share some of my favorite ones with you.
I encourage you to read these principles a few times. Internalize them and try to apply them. Doing so often will allow you to discover their inherent meaning, which will provide guidance in many decisions, actions, and behaviors.
This is the first of a series of posts, one for each of the principles. The posts are intended to add some of my interpretations to the principles and provide suggestions on how to use them. However, it is important that you seek your own interpretations, and that you find ways to apply them in that context.
I am interested in hearing stories of how you were able to apply these principles to your work and life. Please let me know using the comment section or the contact form.
