The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win. To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.

Some may say that this is not practical in any sense.. But may I remind you that this is the best way to conquer anything. It does not mean that I am supportive of warfare . Here are some real life examples :

  • Well the same principle is used in the martial art called Aikido in which the main goal is to subdue your opponent without causing least or any injury to opponent using locks ,takedowns etc.
  • Often conflicts occur between countries due to their difference in opinion in some matters . The best way to not kindle the conflict and reduce it is to find common ground and work together to find a solution that is satisfactory to both sides.

The Art of War

by Sun Tzu

Devote significant time in planning for any project. And more importantly, use deception. Many people get over excited on starting a new project and fail to fool-proof it, ultimately giving your rival an advantage. Your buisness should be seen as struggling to your rivals until you reach a point where you're outperforming them. "When you're near, you must make the enemy belive, you're far away."
