I’ve always loved chess and strategy games. It’s a different kind of puzzle, one that pits my mind against a specific set of challenges, challenges that cannot be solved blind repetition and dogged determination. I must think to overcome.
I suppose that’s why I’ve always loved Sun Tzu’s Art of War. The perspectives and philosophies in the book speak to me, and are applicable to so much beyond simple battlefield conflict. There is merit in applying what he teaches to every aspect of life, and to take a look at life from a different angle, to see the pieces on the board in a new way.
In this way I can discover new moves.
