Principle

Instil strict discipline in your troops.

Effect

Disciplined troops are efficient on the march and in camp. They are tidy and sharp in their actions and follow orders with alacrity.

In battle they are courageous and effective, acting in close coordination for maximum results.

Disciplined troops can seem relaxed at times, but they know the importance of rest and recuperation (R&R) yet are always alert and can snap into full action at a moment's notice.

Discipline is particularly important in retreat, where a pursuing enemy can cause panic and consequent havoc. Like attacks it should be well-practiced.

Invoking

Discipline starts with practice and ends with respect and affection. Disciplined troops rehearse until they are blue in the face and can maneuver blindfold.

Ill-discipline is dealt with immediately and consistently and reflects the importance of officers also being well-disciplined.

Discipline is also a mental principle and thinking about both strategy and immediate action needs to be rigorous and complete.

Analogy

Prepare your arguments before the debate. Know the likely actions of the other side and have counters ready to their moves. Do not be aroused by their trickery and stick to your plans. As necessary, pull back and rethink.
