Know Yourself, Know Enemy.

To defeat enemy in a battle, tactical or not, on small or large scale, one has to:

1. Know & Understand Yourself.

- introspection - looking inside, as in a mirror ... to describe this too precisely would hurt - everyone has her or his own introspection method(s),
- reflection - thinking about oneself, one's tools ... we prefer to not precise again,
- insight - observing mind, thoughts & feelings that appear. meditation, observing breath can be a key.

2. Know & Understand Enemy.

- spying,
- books & training courses,
- investigate causes of enmity & methods,
- analysis & internalisation.

3. Form a Plan.

i think that self-understanding is more important than understanding of opposing force(s).

not sure by how much.

but in truth both should be perfected.

4. Prepare.

- arm Your forces, even if it's only You,
- train, practice.

5. Deploy, if neccesary.

- it's best if victory occurs without battle.

---

it's an abstract post on how to win against enemy of any kind. it's powerful but not easy or pleasant method.

my main enemy is Ego.

i think there are also lesser tactics, less demanding for easier tasks.

should learn them as well - i think it's skillful to do that. ---


It's more important to know Yourself than to Know Enemy.

If You know Yourself, Your weaknessess & strengths, and enemy knows You, You have advantage.

If You know Yourself, and Enemy knows himself or herself - no one holds advantage, unless more developed.

If both Know Enemies, more developed has an Advantage.

If You know both Yourself & Enemy, and enemy knows himself or herself - You have Advantage.

... And never, ever underestimate enemy. Make sure he or she underestimates You - not by 1,2 or 3 times, but to the extreme - more than million times if neccessary. i am quite serious about that with myself, at least.
