Principled thinking is missing from a lot of what we do, mainly because we aren’t taught or shown how to do it.
Yet when one begins working to principles, things become simpler over time, and the amount of paper work that one does, becomes less and less.
And being principled in coaching, allows one to work to a more clearer path, for if one works to a principled approach in coaching, essentially it comes down to three main areas, with them being:
Picture & Aim
Base & Growth
Trial & Error
For the Picture & Aim brings the Imagination into play – ie: creation element, for having a picture in your head of what you want to do and achieve activates the imagination, and as the imagination is the basis of creation, by taking action, one can begin to create what they imagine
And to build anything, one needs a Base & Growth, for the base is the counter weight for the growth that one wants to achieve, for to much growth without a solid base, we all know where that leads.
And everything consists of Trial & Error, for to begin, one must try things, and everything that one tries will not be correct, so error becomes involved.
Though with a picture to work from, the more one progresses, the trials continue, though the errors become less and less.
How To Read Blueprints
When it comes to coaching, very few will start with a picture in their heads about what they are working towards, yet no one would begin to build a building without first have a blue print in their hands
