    Once you realize that you can't in them all, you start choosing your battles wisely - so that you will win the big war. You can do this smartly by first dropping those which have little to no long term consequences, and then weighing out the benefits versus costs if you must fight any battles at all. Nonetheless, at some stage in life you also begin to appreciate that the purpose of your life is way above and beyond these fighting and winning games. And you become wise to think about and strategize the "win-win" situations that would make you and your opponent triumphant. Lest we forget, life is too short to worry about warring. Real wisdom of life is to turn around the battles into a "win-win" scenarios, and life is measured by how effectively and how often you accomplish it.
