Have You Seen This?

As aquaman (a/k/a Michael Phelps) seeks to make Olympic history in Beijing, the advice from a Chinese champion from another era and another discipline is ageless. Be it sport, politics, business, or war, a few words from Sun Tzu.

"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."

"Speed is the essence of war. Take advantage of the enemy's unpreparedness; travel by unexpected routes and strike him where he has taken no precautions."

"Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance."

"What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease."

"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win."

Have a good weekend.
