Occupy the advantageous place first.
Gunnsou is the job of getting the place you want or advantageous position on the battlefield. This “Gunnsou” is a proper noun from Sun Tzu’s Art of War. Even if you live in a place that has no connection to war, those who understand this military conflict are strong.
Often the places you want are also wanted by your rivals. If you head for your destination with impunity, you will face fierce obstruction. It takes ingenuity.
Gunnsou is the most difficult task in war
If you are good at Gunnsou, it is easy to get things done to your advantage, no matter what you do. Let me give you an easy-to-understand analogy. In a company that is short-staffed, applying for paid leave is a constant competition. When and when to take a vacation. How long will my physical strength last? When will you go on a date with your girlfriend? When will you travel? When are legal ceremonies and other weddings and funerals scheduled? These considerations must be taken into account when applying for time off quickly.
Basically, the earlier you apply for paid leave, the better. If you are covered by someone else, you will have to negotiate with them. This negotiation is at your overwhelming disadvantage. If they refuse, you lose.
Living is a battle itself.
Oliver used to have a hard time with Gunnsou. I didn’t even understand what it was.
Now that he has studied it in various books, he understands its necessity.
I missed my vacation!
If you don’t understand the concept of Gunnsou, you are likely to have a lower success rate no matter what you do. And you will keep losing for the rest of your life.
If you have time to complain, turn your calendar around. And book your vacation as soon as possible.
In the unlikely event that you are called in on a holiday, never show up for work because it is a trap. He who quickly holds the place he wants will always have the upper hand.
