The onset of troops is like the rush of a torrent which will even roll stones along in its course. The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim. Therefore the good fighter will be terrible in his onset, and prompt in his decision. Energy may be likened to the bending of a crossbow; decision, to the releasing of a trigger.

The only energy applied in table billiards is that of the cue tip contacting the cue ball. The speed can range from a gentle half roll up through the massive force of a break shot. The actual applied speed depends on two factors – the decision in the mind, and the execution of trained muscles. When these are not coordinated, the results are unpredictable. Only when the body can execute precisely what the mind wants will you get the results intended. The Intelligent player strives to closely match the intention to the reality.
