Principles (Part II)
Timeless and universal influencers of human effectiveness
“There are three constants in life – change, choice and principles.”

Principles govern one's results over the long term.
— Excerpt from Principles I —
Principles can be likened to the law of gravity: Throw a rock out of a window and you know it will fall toward the earth – every time!
Principles are environmental factors that control, influence, and dictate one's results.
Covey shares his, "Law of the Farm" example to convey a principle in action.
It's impossible to plant a seed today and reap the harvest tomorrow.
The principles at play demand that time and nurture are required to reap a harvest.
Thus, principles govern results.
Human effectiveness operates similarly – within a context of timeless, environmental principles.
Part II is about how the concept of principles coincides with “The 3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System.”
In the model above, where do you think these governing, timeless principles are located?
One's environment has the ability to be a showstopper depending upon the goal they are aiming for.
For instance, just try to grow flowers in the snow.
Similarly, imagine a client whose home life is a wreck. They have a tenant they cannot evict and their wife is threatening divorce.
How likely is it that they will be able to finish their creative endeavor anytime soon?
About zero percent.
Why does this matter?
It matters because this model reminds us that we must develop our habits and skills within a conducive environment – one that is in alignment with the governing and timeless principles at play.
Is your environment favorable for your goals and ideals?
Are you working in harmony with governing principles like "the law of the farm?"
Are there more tools, and resources (time, money, people) required to help develop the required habits and skills?
My latest book, EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY, reveals the first and only behavior model to illustrate human behavior in an “echo-system.” Not eco-system.
Further, it illustrates how the essential components for personal transformation and long-term goal achievement must be aligned for human effectiveness.
