Do you defend against the attack or the consequence?

Do you walk around waiting on an attack so you can respond, or do you position yourself in situations that would lead a potential attacker down a planned road to doom ahead of time?

Depending on your answer, does it affect your strategy in dealing with a situation by planning ahead, or do you just deal with one problem at a time?

I remember the pool analogy Mr. Parker used about playing 3 or 4 moves ahead and setting up your next shot.... but what about beyond the encounter???? What about dealing with the consequence of your actions/ reactions, moments, hours, days or even years later?????

Does it make a difference in an attack to only consider what you will defend with.......or do you consider that the person you are doing your thing on is a pissed off Stock Broker, a Gang Member, the Biggest Mass Murderer in the US, or one of millions infected with some type of infectious condition?

I would hope that people have a game plan to deal with such encouters, but sad to say that there are a lot of people who don't. So what type of strategist are you and how will you deal with the consequences?
