37: Doing Little

The wise project manager knows that doing little is how things work. The Tao does nothing, yet everything gets done.

The Tao
Lao Tsu tells us:

Tao abides in non-action,
Yet nothing is left undone.
If kings and lords observed this,
The ten thousand things would develop naturally.
If they still desires to act,
They would return to the simplicity of formless substance.
Without the form there is no desire.
Without desire there is no tranquillity.
And in this way all things would be at peace.
