The Tao of Leadership

When there is order there is little to do

Selflessness gives one center.
Center creates order.
When there is order, there is little to do.

~ "37. Doing Little" in THE TAO OF LEADERSHIP by John Heider

Tao does nothing at all, yet everything gets done

It puzzles people at first, to see how little the able leader actually does,
and yet how much gets done.
But the leader knows that is how things work.  After all, Tao does nothing at all,
yet everything gets done.
When the leader gets too busy,
the time has come to return to
selfless silence.

Selflessness gives one center.
Center creates order.
When there is order, there is little to do.
