    When Sun-Tzu said "Every Battle Is Won Before It Is Ever Fought.", he highlighted the absolute importance of Planning that can lead to positive result in subsequent Execution. In other words, Execution can be excellent, only when Planning is perfect. Also important is the planning for most contingencies, as a best General or a savvy Manager knows. IMHO it's interesting to realize that such supreme strategies and wisdom were thought about and explained 2500 years ago, by Sun-Tzu, outstanding Chinese Military General, visionary Strategist and great Philosopher. Amazing!

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Whether we like it or not, we are the dwarfs astride the shoulders of giants, and that's the only reason why we can see lot more and farther on the horizon than our predecessors could. Our accomplishments of greatest pride, like classic creations, amazing arts, wonderful writings, beautiful paintings, and ingenius inventions are all, in fact, the builds and extensions of the wisdom that came to us from our ancestors. We mastered their wisdom and moved above and beyond. We must gratefully recognize that it was their wisdom that enabled us to grow wiser, and to see farther than they could. It is foolish to think that we are able to see or do what we can today is because we are greater than they. We are merely the dwarfs who are uplifted and borne aloft on the giagantic stature of our predecessors. Accepting this truth with humility not only sets us free, but also keeps us firmly down to earth.
