About winning

"Winning continuously is a complete disaster"
Takeshi H.

This little wisdom pearl that could be attributed to Sun Tzu comes from my classmate and friend Takeshi. He initially alluded at the negative effect on personal relationships of having one side always winning. The quote can have many other different readings. It could also point at the need of commiting mistakes in order to learn.

Takeshi introduced me to the work of the Japanese architect Tadao Ando and is also a fan of 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School, by Matthew Fredderick, a great read for anybody who likes to connect dots.
