VII. Maneuvering – Stupidity

Sun Tzu said:  7. Thus, if you order your men to roll up their buff-coats, and make forced marches without halting day or night, covering double the usual distance at a stretch, doing a hundred LI in order to wrest an advantage, the leaders of all your three divisions will fall into the hands of the enemy.  8. The stronger men will be in front, the jaded ones will fall behind, and on this plan only one-tenth of your army will reach its destination.

In business: 7. Thus, if you order your team to roll up their sleaves, and make forced moves without recess day or night, covering double the usual distance in one go, stretching your team 100% of the time, to wrest an advantage, the leaders of all your teams will fall into the hands of the competition.  8. The strong leaders will be in front, the less strong will fall behind and on this plan only one tenth of your employees will achieve to standard.
