PD takes time and energy, and there are many areas for us to improve in before we become better "all round" people. If energy is spent so heavily on meeting Maslows basic survival needs, I personally feel that it makes sense to deal with this aspect first before addressing problems higher up the triangle.
Again, this is only my own perspective but I feel there is a logical order in which to do things- or an order that will result in the fastest overall improvement. Now while the TLP modal doesn't prevent this approach, it does offer a more "one size fits all" angle/ framework from which to build from.
I figure that Maslow's heirachy represents the what in life, ie: twhat we want to satisfying and move on to achieving. T/L/P represents the how. We achieve what we set out to achieve by utilising T/L/P. We sabotage out efforts when we go against T/L/P.
