The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on. — Ulysses S. Grant
My Take – Life doesn’t give credit for style or effort. It only gives credit for results. Plan your efforts in the most simple and plain fashion you can think of. Unless Ian Fleming is writing your biography, elaborate plans only make things harder. Keep it simple. Define what you want or need to do, where you are now, what resources you have, and the best way to use those resources to achieve your goal. Looking clever and failing is useless.
