If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

I found a most interesting article on The Free Dictionary called The Art of War It would seem apparent that Sun Tzu knew the importance of knowing the enemy, but more importantly, knowing yourself first.

This could apply to anyone seeking to live better!

It sounds "wise," doesn't it? Truth is, confidence and intelligence is less than half of the battle. Killing the other guy first. That's what matters.

Shoot first and ask questions later, or knowing your enemy through his autopsy result.

If you don't know yourself you may only think you know your enemy, but not your worst.
