Strategy in five bullets

  • Strategy is how you get to the end.

  • Most ends require a series of steps to be reached; those steps are the tactics. The sum of the tactics makes the strategy.

  • In its simplest form, a strategy is a tactic.

  • A goal may sometimes be too complex for a single strategy, so several strategies are needed to reach certain intermediary positions.

  • Playing without a strategy is a strategy itself, although a pretty reckless one.
