139. Book Review | Art of War by Sun Tzu

It’s truly amazing the way the wisdom from Art of War has lasted, and most likely will last much longer. There’s tremendous advice relevant to those who may not be in war, but are vying for position or competing in some way. The wisdom in this book is timeless, although it may not apply in the same way.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.”

Sun Tzu

While many of us will never direct troops in a war, we may lead a company, fight a political battle, or coach a team (even if it’s little league). Each of these is like going to war, but with lower costs. And, much of what works for war will work in other battles as well.

Grab your copy of Sun Tzu’s Art of War here.

If you’re looking for a quick, easy read that is packed with wisdom, then check out Art of War. The short excerpts of wisdom are in an easily digestible format and are packed with a lot to contemplate. Like Meditations or the Tao Te Ching, it is a collection of excerpts rather than a large, continuous work. I think this makes it easier to break down and digest what you’re reading.

I really recommend you grab your copy and read it for yourself. Then, let me know what you think.

142. Don't Attribute To Stupidity That Which Is Proven To Be Malice Conversation of Our Generation

Stupidity doesn't explain everything. And, in our culture, it seems like too many sensible people deny evidence that points to malice in favor of the stupidity explanation. Listen below or subscribe to the podcast here. "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity" -Hanlon's razor I try to look at things in a charitable light and not assign motives. That said, eventually when evidence stacks up high enough, it's time to admit that what may appear accidental wasn't. And, to not allow people to simply ask questions, but insist that they're conspiracy theorists if they do, is wrong. That's why today we're going to take a look at real conspiracies that are known world-wide as well as weird occurrences that you aren't allowed to attribute malice to- or even ask about. A few examples of verified conspiracies: The 9/11 Attacks Lincoln assassination Crucifixion of Jesus Now, there are often events that are attributed to stupidity before even being evaluated: The Mandalay Bay shooting Explosion in Beirut The Epstein and Ghislane connections The new controversy over a Trolls doll Enjoy solving today's problems with the wisdom of the past?
