COMPLETE TEXT: THE ART OF PLANNING ©2020"The Art of Planning"
Proficiency in the art of war
is crucial for a nation.
Its health and existence
are dependent upon it.
Wise leaders should understand this.
Neglecting to give full measure
to its importance ultimately leads
to the ruin of the state.
All warfare is based on deception.
Appearing unconcerned aides in preparation.
Projecting false weakness emboldens the enemy.
Obscuring the attack increases its advantage.
Concealing weapons assure their efficiency.
Secrecy leads to surprise.
Surprise leads to victory.
All battles are based on strategy.
When facing a superior enemy – evade them.
If the enemy is quick to anger – light the fuse.
When the enemy seeks rest – pursue them relentlessly.
If the enemy is united – divide them.
Respect the enemy’s strong point – avoid it.
Discover the enemy’s weak point – attack it ruthlessly.
Superior generals consider
multiple scenarios prior to battle;
exploring a vast array of alternatives,
to all possible assaults.
Victory favors those who prepare.
Losing generals plan
against only what is expected;
showing lack of respect to the enemy,
and a lack of responsibility by the general.
Defeat is the friend of fools.
