04: The Way Is Not a Thing
The Way is not a thing; it is a single unifying principle or law. The wise project manager does not search for the way, he runs his project in harmony with it.
Lao Tsu tells us:
The Tao is an empty vessel; it is used, but never filled.
Oh, unfathomable source of ten thousand things!
Blunt the sharpness,
Untangle the knot,
Soften the glare,
Merge with dust.
Oh, hidden deep but ever present!
I do not know from whence it comes.
It is the forefather of the emperors.
