Concepts 101 Part 10: Concept, Principle & Skill


Behind every great skill, there is a Concept so that the skill can be adapted and adjusted according to the situation.

Even fools can understand that there is an underlying concept, but not everyone can comprehend the concept behind even he/she knows about the skill. Then he/she can only use the skill at its surface level and can never be a master of it! (That's why I always do a long introduction at any of my programs so that everyone understand the concept before they learn something)

Concepts are difficult to be comprehended because they are abstract. To make the skill useful, smart originators of any skill will formulate Principles to guide the Skill users in applying.

When you learn a skill, at least clarify its Principles or you have not really learned the skill.
