In just five minutes, this Life Guide video gives a palatable overview of Chinese military strategist and philosopher Sun Tzu's ancient treatise, The Art of War. Written in the 5th century BC, Tzu's work is still used to teach leaders today and is considered the world's foremost guide on military strategies and tactics.
Here's some wisdom from the paper:
"A leader leads by example, not by force."
"Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak."
"The greatest victory is that which requires no battle."
"When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move."
"The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent."
"Never venture, never win!"
And of course, this one should be familiar:
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
Personally, I'm more of a War of Art kind of gal.
