"The army's formation is like water. The water's formation avoids the high and rushes to the low. So an army's formation avoids the strong and rushes to the weak." Sun Tzu
Water, due to gravity, flows to the lowest point. Likewise, the wise strategist, due to his wisdom, attacks the opponent's weakest point with his strongest point. Not only will this give you a good head start and momentum but also control of the direction of the situation. Therefore, you have the advantage of the first in the series of moves and the competition are merely reacting to them. If this continues and no mistakes are made, then who do you suppose will prevail?
Be like water, my fellow leaders and strategists.
