I. Laying Plans

 

Sun Tzu said: Commentary
15. The general that hearkens to my counsel and acts upon it, will conquer: let such a one be retained in command! The general that hearkens not to my counsel nor acts upon it, will suffer defeat:--let such a one be dismissed! Read, understand and apply Sun Tzu. Do not reject it because it seems too simple, too complex or too outdated. If you think this, question your own understanding.
16. While heading the profit of my counsel, avail yourself also of any helpful circumstances over and beyond the ordinary rules. And even Sun Tzu is not everything. Seek, study and listen elsewhere. Believe nobody has absolute knowledge yet many can contribute. Look for those who can contribute most for you, where you are, now.
17. According as circumstances are favorable, one should modify one's plans. 'Favorable circumstances' are those where the situation suits particular strategies and tactics. Do not blindly follow advice. Understand how the jigsaw works and place the pieces where they fit.
