You were asked – TMP link

What must a general never assume?

And in the final round of voting:

30% said "Luck"

(and 30% said "all of these")

14% said "Assumptions"
11% said "Stupidity of his opponent"

A good general must never assume that things will go according to the plan.

Newly painted troops should be bedded in by being given impossible task to achieve. Then when they fail it isn't because they're newly painted.

A good General always counts on luck.

Counting on all of it being BAD.

Sound up to the point where you never fight a battle because you've convinced yourself you will lose whatever you do.
