Sunzi for Everybody.

By: Eva Wong and Peter van der Molen

 

Every day we have to make choices at a high speed. In our work, on the street and in our domestic life, we are subject to a continuous unrelenting flow of information and options. If we do not make a choice – the situation will do that for us. Then we are no longer in control of what happens to us, but we will have to live with the circumstances imposed upon us.
How do we make strategic choices? What do we need to continuously weigh our options and chose our direction?
