The reason people place a lot of importance on principles is that they are often well-tested guidelines for achieving the best outcome long-term.
So if your principles are in line with reality, ignoring them is bound to fail.
Personal example: I was on psychiatric medication for nine years even though every instinct and everything I believed in told me it was a bad idea. I ended up caving to the doctors' authority out of desperation.
Today I practically consider that nine years down the drain, which could very well have killed me, and which have likely shrunk my brain and caused untold damage to my surroundings. I gave up my integrity and suffered the inevitable consequences.
Or take Lance Armstrong. Sure, great show. But what about now?1
