Read in January, 1985

It's kind of cliched to praise this ancient Chinese general as some sort of management guru. And it can play to a rather ugly corner of the manager's self-image. But some of these catchy little aphorisms, after suitable translation into the language of business, really do contain wisdom worth pondering. And the work of considering each in turn, whether it can be translated into something meaningful for your situation, is a kind of meditation that can lead you to a wider understanding of who you really are, and what you're trying to achieve.
