Learn Principles, not Methods

I quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
If you learn only methods, you´ll be tied to your methods but if you learn principles you can devise your own methods.

Learn the basis of what you're doing and only then, can you truly understand and appreciate what you're doing and make improvements to it. You can't improve something which you cannot understand.

25 components do seem to be a little excessive though. Personally I believe in simplicity and if your principles are strong, the methods become irrelevant.
