Defense: the best offense

Defense is the best offense: let the enemy make mistakes by rushing into battle and outwit them by remaining cool-headed in the face of their attack.

Harness your people’s potential by giving them the opportunities to use their abilities rather than constraining them with unnecessary rules and restrictions. Results will naturally follow.

「善為士者不武,善戰者不怒,善勝敵者不與,善用人者為之下,是謂不爭之德,是謂用人之力,是謂配天,古之極也。」
Great military commanders are not warlike.
Great soldiers do not get angry.
Great conquerors do not engage with the enemy.
Great leaders place themselves below their people.
This is called the virtue of non-competition.
This is called harnessing people’s strength.
This is called the union with Heaven;
The supreme principle of the ancients.
