Do you know the difference between tactics and strategy? This is not about hair-splitting, believe me, because without an understanding of them both you can get caught up in details without long-term plans goals.
Strategy is the big picture. It’s how you win the war, not the details of each battle. So, naturally, those short-term techniques employed in each battle are the tactics.
