Week 20

Hi Reader,

This week finally comes with a new principle. My aim in each new principle series is to start with the fundamental laws. They tend to be much more important than any that follow, yet hard to master and accept. In investing, that was the Hierarchy of investor needs.

The High Ground principle dates back 2,000 years. I take a fresh look at it and attempt to motivate a generalization outside military contexts. Whatever you are dealing with, there's probably a "High Ground" strategy available to you.
