Debate: What do you think of this quotation below from Miyamoto Musashi's "The Book of Five Rings : Gorin-no-sho" ? Do you apply this principle yourself in your martial art or in your life?

Quote from Miyamoto Musashi's "The Book of Five Rings : Gorin-no-sho" :
Quote
The mountain-sea spirit means that it is bad to repeat the same thing several times when fighting the enemy. There may be no help but to do something twice, but do not try it a third time. If you once make an attack and fail, there is little chance of success if you use the same approach again.

You gotta agree with Mushashi, you become predictable repeating your attacks and that can be very dangerous especially back then.
