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.
