When is taking the high ground a bad response?
I have recently been getting in trouble, socially, for talking about taking the high grounds in an opportunity of bringing/showing/teaching peace/love/appropriate behavior. There is no instance that comes to mind where taking the high road the wrong choice. Have you come across one of these instances?
Not really sure. The 'middle of the road' tends to offer compromise or a win-win solution seeking resolution. Most who have read Sun Tzu's book 'The Art of War' in my humble view miss the books point. War is an 'Art'.
That being said what art is and those principals apply. Art essentially is aesthetics within philosophy, religions, and life in general. It is the study of the nature of art (war), including such concepts as interpretation, representation and expression, and form. It too is the study of its beauty and taste.
Once studying the 'Art of War' with many books by Gary Gagliardi and the conceived website I realized for me of least the whole point besides it being a 'art' is the easiest way to win a war . . . is not to go to war.
I've recently acquired that book as a hand-me-down but have yet to read it. But your ending statement is the truest thing I can think of. Just don't go to war. To me, that's taking the higher road after all. Not participating, turning the other cheek
Hi! I noticed your profile . . . with 'mindfulness.' Gary's website offers abundant info - free and pay. Very helpful with understanding strategy in/for life and of business being the main emphasis. A clue is he emphasizes "shinning your own star."
