The Art of War. I love Asian culture, art, food and I especially love Asian foreign films. I also find the book 'The Art of War" very intriguing as it applies to character and leadership development. Here are a few excerpts that may inspire you or provide advice and encouragement as you prepare for 2010. Be: Swift as the wind; Gentle as a forest; fierce as fire; firm as a mountain. BUT!!! Remember a hot cup of tea and a little solitude can bring calm and focus and allow you to listen to the voice within. Stay Strong.
