Strategy views the world as a process. Sun Tzu's strategy is never about what a situation, person, or group is, but what that situation, person, or group is in the process of becoming. This dynamic view combats our natural tendency to see things incorrectly as absolutes. To capture this strategic view, you can substitute the phrase "are in the process of becoming" in any place you might normally use the word "is." Strategically, it is not completely accurate to say you are a man or a woman.
