What is a Basic?

There are basics in every industry and technology. Most dictionaries define a basic as the essential facts or principles of a subject or skill. While this is true, there is another element that makes a basic a basic. A basic is an underlying principle around which all other information on that subject is aligned. And that’s an important addition to the definition, as all phenomenon can be explained in any subject by referring to the basics.

This means, in a subject that is complete, no matter what happens, there is a basic that explains and puts all possible actions and variables related to that subject into an understandable perspective that you can then apply to that subject and get a predictable result. That’s how you get predictable results.

If you find that’s not the case with a particular action or variable on a subject, then you either don’t know the basic, didn’t apply it or it hasn’t been discovered.

This is important to know for any subject but knowing the basics can mean the difference between prosperity and poverty. It doesn’t matter what industry you are in or who you are. Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Bill Gates, Thomas Jefferson, Angelina Jolie, Derek Jeter, Donald Trump, Mahatma Gandhi and Da Vinci all learned the basics of their professions and all became successful for it. The laws of every field adhere to the basics. All the tutorials in Norton Marketing Management focus on the basics – you’ll figure out the rest. Good Luck!
