Hello!

You may get to reach some level without any planning, but if you look around, all great men and women had a plan. Strategizing and the application of a plan has taken many to great heights. It’s better to have a ‘failed plan’ rather than ‘no plan’, as they say the strategy of ‘no plan’ is a great plan for failure.

This edition features a blog about how strategy and tactics are two sides of the same coin. It features Appy and Proppy in conversation with their mentor Lucky to find out how tactics complement the overall strategy and how strategy gives direction for tactical moves.

Our featured articles from the web discuss how tactics and strategy rely heavily on each other and how they should work in tandem. They also talk about making plans for the future using cones instead of lines.

We end the edition with an interesting take on strategy and tactics. The paradox shows how a wrong tactic can fail the entire strategy. I hope it gets you thinking. Have a nice read.
