Commentary

When you know your objectives, you can then direct your armies to the right places.

A concentrated force can have a powerful effect. A nail can be hammered through hard wood. A sharp knife slices through resistant material. Even a small force, if concentrated at a single point can punch through.

In business, when you know the business intent and direction, you can then formulate how to focus.
