This is the “quality over quantity rule” with a dose of deception (are we sensing a theme here?) Essentially, when you need to conserve energy, do not fight every single battle possible: choose the one that is most likely to hurt your opponent.
Choose your target wisely, and hit where it hurts so that you only have to hit once. Instead of fighting with your soon-to-be-ex-husband’s attorneys over the fine china, sentimental figurines, and gym membership, line up your defenses to go after the stock portfolio.
Be aware of your pressure points: what can you afford to lose, and what can’t you afford to lose? This goes without saying: make sure that the things you value most are the best-protected.
