The Premise – Brian Mudd’s Eight Rules for Life
Bottom Line: As part of my series, Eight Rules for Life, here’s The Premise...
The premise is where it all starts. What’s it? Everything. Here’s the textbook definition:
- base an argument, theory, or undertaking on.
If the premise of anything is false anything built on it will fail too. Take a house for example. You could have the most amazing home equipped with everything you’d always dreamed of but if the foundation of the home is flawed – none of what’s in it matters. That’s why it’s important to only embrace the truth and factual information for the basis of whatever you’re considering. Never accept a false premise. There are two sides to stories but just one side to facts.
