48 Laws Of Power: Law #48 Assume Formlessness

Law 48: Assume formlessness

  •      By having a visible plan you open yourself to attack.
  •      Stay adaptable and on the move
  •      Accept that nothing is certain and no law fixed
  •      Everything changes and never bet on it

I think an important idea to grasp is that water, while formless, never loses its intrinsic nature. When you know exactly who you are and what you’re about, it doesn’t matter what form you take. This law isn’t about being a chameleon. Bruce Lee once said “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
