VII. Maneuvering – Husbanding Strength

Sun Tzu said: 31. To be near the goal while the enemy is still far from it, to wait at ease while the enemy is toiling and struggling, to be well-fed while the enemy is famished:–this is the art of husbanding one’s strength. 32. To refrain from intercepting an enemy whose banners are in perfect order, to refrain from attacking an army drawn up in calm and confident array:–this is the art of studying circumstances.

In business: 31. To be near the goal while the competitor is still far from it, to wait at ease while the competitor is struggling, to be well-financed when the competitor is cash strapped: this is the art of husbanding one’s strength. 32. To refrain from intercepting a competitor whose systems are in perfect order, to refrain from campaigning against a company drawn up in calm and confident array: this is the art of studying circumstances.
