Competition

With a rival or competitor, avoid predictability. It's easy to shoot a bird flying in a straight line, not so easy if they weave back and forth. Poker players don't play with their cards face up. With an enemy watching, frequently change the way you do things—don't always act on the first or the second impulse.
