Key Strategic Principles in The Art of War

Central Strategic Principles in the Art of War

I have distilled the fundamental strategic building blocks from the original Art of War as written by Sun Tzu and will be building the structure of my book on how to apply the timeless wisdom of the art of war in the 21st century.

These principles can be applied to many areas including:

  • Business Strategy
  • Everyday Life
  • War
  • etc.

Here are the key principles in the Art of War

  1. Have as much knowledge about yourself and your competition (spies and ways to “read” competition, while ensuring that your competition knows as little as possible about you. (Invisibility and deception)
  2. Creating as many options for yourself and limiting their options (see terrain)
  3. Conserving your resources while draining the competition’s resources

In the coming weeks and months I will be building on these principles in the art of war to build a complete strategy framework that you can apply to most things in every day life
