60: Stirring Things Up
In order to publish “The Way of the Project Manager” I can’t have any open source content in it. Hence I am working my way through producing a new translation of the Tao Te Ching using the excellent translation resource web site. Coincidentally off to see “Mao’s Last Dancer” tonight, which might help my Chinese a little.
The wise project manager has a light touch and faith in the way.
Lao Tzu tells us:
Ruling the country is like cooking a small fish.
Approach the universe with Tao,
And evil will have no power.
Not that evil is not powerful,
But its power will not be used to harm others.
Not only will it do no harm to others,
But the sage himself will also be protected.
They do not hurt each other,
And the virtue in each one refreshes both.
