The question is: how?
Many would consider "strategy" as the right starting place. In warfare, and in business, there are strategies which lead to the right tactics. But strategies come first.
"The Art Of War" by Sun Tzu offers strategies that have stood the test of 2,500 years of time and is the most widely read book on military tactics and strategy in the world.
While the book was written as a treatise on military methods; it is the timeless observations on strategy that make it a "must read" by today's political and business leaders.
Its contents may have been considered carefully guarded state secrets in the past, but the lessons are now available for everyone worldwide to read, study, and apply.
if you have not already done so, it would be worthwhile to read the entire text of "The Art Of War." That can be a difficult and time-consuming endeavor your first time through.
We learn through repetition, however, reading the complete book several times is impractical for most people.

One final note before you begin to read the quotes. As previously mentioned, "The Art Of War" was written 2,500 years ago as a military treatise. They are designed to make you think about your strategies. That doesn't mean you have to take them literally or that every one is going to apply in every situation. You will read that "the general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought." That is good advice for all of us.
In addition, some of the quotes are similar in meaning. Consider this a bonus that the lesson can be brought forth with two examples.
