On the other hand a poor project manager will not be stable and can easily be carried away by the intensity of leadership. He will easily get distracted by what is happening around him, will make mistakes of judgment and loose his way.
The wise project manager is not subject to passing whims or sudden excitement. He knows where he stands and what he stands for. He is stable, has a sense of self and will not be knocked off balance.
Lao Tzu tells us:
Heavy is the root of the light,
Still is the master of the agitated.
Therefore the sage, travelling all day,
Though there are beautiful things to be seen,
He remains unattached and calm.
Why should the master of ten thousand chariots,
Act like a fool in public?
Lightness is the way to lose one’s root.
Impetuousness is to lose touch with who you are.
