It comes as a bit of a jolt: What you thought was something which was true everywhere—that always applied—turns out to be just part of your map, a piece of your programming, in fact.
It’s a healthy shock, of course, and one I’ve got more used to—enough to be more alert to the possibility that what I thought was a foundation principle is in fact an area of shifting sand.
Here’s what I’ve found though…
The more fundamental the principle, the more likely it is it really does apply everywhere, and the more sure you can be that it will.
A good reason for working at a deeper level—more chance of being right.
