Don't be Afraid to Look into the Future...

"Think of chess, where the Grandmaster, instread of focusing only on the move at hand and making it soley in reaction to what the other player has just done, must visiaulize the entire chessboard deep into the future, crafting an overall strategy, using the moves of the paws now to set up theose of the more powerful pieces later on...You can tell when to sacrifice a pawn, even lose a battle, if it serves your eventual purpose...Your eyes are focused on the campaign and nothing else. The greatest danger you face in strategy is losing the initiative and finding yourself constantly reacting to what the other side does...The key is to maintain control of your emoitons and plot your moves in advance, seeing the entire chessboard." The 33 Strategies of War, Robert Greene

Another great video by Jerry at the Chess Network!
