What are some basics one should master before pursuing one's interests

In the book the Mozi the writer talks about how one must master the basics in order to have any success. A warrior, for example, can learn reams of tactics, but before those things can be of any use, a he has to be brave. A scholar can read widely, but first he must learn to carry himself properly. Etc.

I think that this kind of thinking can be applied to pretty much any field of human endeavor.

The only one I can think of for now is this: a businessman can have connections and an instinct for efficiency, but none of that will mean anything if he doesn't have a product that people want.

The real purpose of elections is to make the people hate each other more than they hate their government.
