Yes, this is a strategy. It might even be the one you’re taking now. However, it probably isn’t the best strategy. If your competition doesn’t take this strategy, you can be outflanked. If they do nothing, by implementing a deliberate strategy you can outflank them.
However, if after looking at different strategies, and this is still the best, then stick with it. Taking this strategy fully informed is always better than taking it by default.
