Unveiling the Superpower of Strategy

Call me crazy, but I believe effective strategizing is a superpower. Having an effective plan can make dreams come true.

Way back when officers were nobility and upper class, one of the worst things that could happen was that the poor folks forced into service organized and overthrew their leadership. It’s wild to think strategy is so powerful that it was a military secret.
