81: The Reward
Chapter 81 is the final chapter in the Tao. Today it seems appropriate as I have just completed and submitted “The Way of the Project Manager” to Amazon Kindle Publishing.
The wise project manager tries to help others to find their own success. The single principle teaches us that true benefit blesses everyone and diminishes no one, for this is the way of the project manager.
Lao Tzu tells us:
Truthful words are not beautiful.
Beautiful words are not truthful.
Good men do not argue.
Those who argue are not good.
Those who know are not learned.
The learned do not know.
The sage never tries to store things up.
The more he does for others, the more he has.
The more he gives to others, the greater his abundance.
The Tao of heaven is pointed but does no harm.
The Tao of the sage is work without effort.
