Big Mac Principle
Big Mac Principle

Kindling/Little Log Principle
When we build relationships, sell, or start a company, we need to start with little logs to kindle the fire.

A little extra effort gets very big results.
Bury your dead; don't carry them!

Wanting what we cannot have. What do people want more than anything else? What they can’t have. Pull something away from people, and they will want it more.

Two Oxen Principle
2 oxen will do the work of 100 oxen, not of two.

Delayed Results Principle
Plant today and the harvest will come–not today or even tomorrow, but some time in the future.
Finish Line Principle
If you see only 1% of results on your actions now, just wait. In many situations, the majority of the results do not come until the finish line.
Thinker vs. Doer Principle
People have a tendency to be either thinkers or doers. There is a time to think and a time to do. We need to discern what is best in any specific situation.
Pride seems to be rooted in thinking we are better than someone else because of something we did. True thankfulness will eliminate pride because the good we are capable of is the result of others’ investment in our lives.
Beam Me Up Scotty Principle
Back off when you think you see a major fault in someone else because it may be your own fault reflecting back at you.
Practiced Perfection Principle

Bowling Strike Principle
Just as getting multiple strikes in bowling in a row is better than several strikes spread out throughout the game, it is important to consistently get all the great actions completed month after month rather than sporadically.
We didn’t get to where we are overnight; we’re probably not going to change overnight. Quick changes typically don’t last. Make a little change every day and great success will follow.
Satellite / Fertilizer Principle
Farmers use satellites to identify the makeup of the soil and then apply the proper amount of fertilizer for maximum crop yield.
Moldy Strawberry Principle
If one moldy strawberry sits in a bunch, it will turn all the strawberries bad. If we have one bitter client or bitter employee, it will create bitterness throughout the whole team.
Warm Belly Rub Principle
Story of changing baby’s diaper. It shouldn’t just be done based on the mechanics; we need to keep the baby warm, give him a hug, and rub his belly. The same thing is true in business; we need to teach people how to give the warm belly rubs, not just the mechanics.
Pool Shot Principle
Just like any good pool (billiards) player, one must set up the next six shots. Anyone that is looking to accomplish one thing will accomplish just that – one thing. (Positioning)
Car Made On Friday Principle
People will tell you NOT to buy a car that is made on a Friday because everyone is looking toward the weekend and you don’t know what you’ll get. Many professionals are just like people who work the assembly line in that they take their eyes off the important task at hand and end up missing huge opportunities both professionally and personally. When we’re working, we need total focus on work; when we are playing, we should be all there; and when spending time with family, focus completely on them.
Space Shuttle Principle
It takes 80% of the shuttle’s energy to get out of the atmosphere, which is only a very small fraction of the time in space travel. The same thing is true in life. With most objectives of great value, it takes 80% to break through the atmosphere, and once we do that, it takes very little effort to maintain.
Invisible Factor Principle
In business, life, and relationships it’s the hidden factor that is often the one which is most important. If we aren’t willing to actively seek truth, be very observant, or ask the hard questions we will often miss the most important factor in any given situation. This factor is often the difference between success and “failure” in any given situation.
Assembly line versus Craftsman principle
Sales professional, business owners, and entrepreneurs will often run their business like craftsman. They do everything themselves just to make sure that everything is done the right way. They are very skilled in all the smallest details and know who they all fit together. Assembly line thinking individuals build businesses which can run without them and can be sold. It’s almost impossible to sell or run a craftsman business without the craftsman. By putting all the smallest steps of the process into an assembly line it will produce maximum productivity, quality, at the lowest possible investment to your customers.
Pyramid Building Leadership Principle
If you’re building a pyramid and you don’t have your base strong you’re going to fail. It’s like this in building an organization as well. If the base people aren’t doing their jobs they you won’t be able to build upward. Leadership needs wisdom to hire the good people, help to train and mentor them to be great, and then know when to expect greatness, and how much to expect from them. People must do their jobs they can’t have people above them continuing to come back and do their jobs for them.
Success through starving family principle
If you want a division, product, or service to be successful assign it to someone whose family will starve if they aren’t successful. You can have a great product which will fail because you don’t have someone like this in-charge and you can have a mediocre product or service which will succeed and become great over time due to having someone’s family at risk.
Spinning of plates principle
It’s fairly easy in life to get one or two plates spinning, but to get a dozen or more plates is another thing, and yet and even greater accomplishment in life is to keep them all spinning consistently. One of the greatest feelings and accomplishments in life is helping to teach others how to keep the great things in their lives spinning consistently which produces excellence in all areas of life.
The Humming bird principle
For many years science could not figure our how a humming bird could fly. It was impossible based on the science of the day. One of the most exciting things in life is to understand truth as it relates to cause and affects. The following formula was developed based on many natural laws all combined together to produce predictable success in all areas of our lives.
The Law of Large Numbers
Almost anything can be predicted if you have a large enough population. Large insurance companies can predict when we’re going to die based on the law of large numbers. Large companies have an advantage over small companies because small companies have a hard time getting a large enough population.
Based on our personalities which will give us natural giftedness and strengths we tend to overvalue those things we’re good at and undervalue those things we’re weak at. This is a huge liability as it causes us to not see truth but to be deceived in not really seeing were we’re at in work, relationships, or friendship. It will also cause us to miss read others and not be able to build as strong as friendship and relationships as we will not value and/or show value to those who are around us.
No matter how effective or efficient we are if we’re surrounded by inefficient, ineffective people we to will be inefficient and ineffective.
Create the rules
When we establish the standards for a level of service that standard can become the rule. For example, when we say to a client “These are the rules for creating a RAVING FAN client” they will use this as a baseline for anyone else they are thinking of working with. Your standard now has become the law.
Fear or Die
We should do the right things for one of three reasons. The best reason for doing things should be #1. Out of Love, if that’s not enough motivation then we should do it out of #2. Friendship, and if that’s not enough motivation then we should do it out of #3. Fear. Doing things out of fear isn’t his best motivation but when we do the right things even for the wrong motivation we will see some level of success.

The fishing pole

The combining principle
95% of all challenges/problems will be solved with a strong point-of-entry process.
The heavier the load the lighter it is
Just like painting by numbers can make someone look more like and artist and give them greater confidence we’re able to do the same in business if we take advance concepts and break them down into the smallest pieces and the provide a solution and train others in how to present that solution.

Want what they don’t have – What is it that people want more than anything else? If we put a toddle in a room with a thousand toys and one other toddler, what does the toddler want? They want what the other toddle has. We as human beings want what we can’t have.
The teenage principle
The teenage principle – Many times as team members grow professionals and even as a team matures we can become like teenagers.

We can often believe that we know more than other people who have much more life experience than we do.
The space shuttle O-ring principle
