Guiding Principles Introduction

I ordered these principles in pairs. One principle in the pair represents 'yin', it restrains, the other represents 'yang', it encourages. I use the words 'maximize' and 'minimize' because they encourage continuous improvement. I have framed my philosophy in terms of signal processing and information theory.

I find both principles in the pair equivalent, however I find it easier to think in terms of one or the other in given situations.
