James Burgess, Focus31, The Art of War

On the advice of a good friend I’ve just started reading The Art of War (Sun-Tzu).

 I barely opened the book to start reading and I’ve already seen incredible parallels with business ownership (business planning) I think particularly with small business ownership.

 Let me share because Chapter 1 in The Art of War  is called Making of Plans (substitute business planning)

 Yes if you know me that would catch my attention.  I’m adapting the words to fit the business environment.

 Business is

     A grave affair of state

     It is a place 

     Of success and failureJames Burgess, Focus31, Art Of War

     A road

     To survival and extinction

     A decision

     To be considered carefully

 There are Five Fundamentals

     The Vision:       To see the opportunity and not waiver (NOTE:  A Vision Statement is the first element in business planning)

     Change:            Is inevitable

     Action:              Is required (NOTE: Action Plans implement business planning)

     Leadership:       Requires wisdom, and courage

     Accountability:  To do

 Every business owner is (should be) aware

     He who grasps them

     Wins

     He who fails to grasp them

     Loses
