The Art of War and Sport

Business is a combination of war and sport.
Andre Maurois

When we think of business many of us take a positional posture that shows our intellect, or skills and our knowledge I like to call it.

According to the Britannica Online Encyclopedia (),"Born into a prosperous family of textile manufacturers, Maurois came under the influence of the French philosopher and teacher Alain (Émile-Auguste Chartier). He was a liaison officer in the British army during World War I, and his first literary success was a humorous commentary on warfare and the British character in Les Silences du Colonel Bramble (1918; The Silence of Colonel Bramble). His novels, including Bernard Quesnay (1926) and Climats (1928; Whatever Gods May Be), focus on middle-class provincial life, marriage, and the family. As a historian he demonstrated his interest in the English-speaking world with his popular histories: Histoire de l’Angleterre (1937; “History of England”) and Histoire des États-Unis (1943; “History of the United States”). In 1938 he was elected to the Académie Française"

War and sport, business is like this, there is a time to suit up full armor, ready for battle, staying focus, meeting your daily goal. Goals that include a winning attitude, preparing the challenge of the day. Positional posturing, intellectual skills that set your business apart from others. Walking in prosperity, prosperous mindset. Now the sport of it, having fun while you are preparing, being creative, structuring your business day, positioning your skills and meeting the challenge with a smile. Well I thought this was interesting and I wanted to share. Whats you business posturing today?
