Is Adaptation, know the general goals, and be SUPER flexible on the way to get there.
Just adapt to whatever is throw at you, to redirect it toward that "general main goal"
Don't take 1 path, and stick to it not matter what. Adapt all the time with what you have at hand.
Than take a step back, so you stop seeing things as a "Front man" but able to put everything aside so you can have a "Global view"
So you can anticipate what may come, and adjusting without being affected by it.
That's how they win the trench war in 1915 when attacking Paris.
