If we accept, in silence, that things are the way they are, then we move forward along the way. So in times of turmoil the good project manager should hold onto the belief that everything happens according to one universal principal.
Lao Tsu tells us:
The greatest virtue is to follow Tao and Tao alone.
The Tao is elusive and intangible.
Oh, it is intangible and elusive, and yet within its image.
Oh, it is elusive and intangible, and yet within its form.
Oh, it is dim and dark, and yet within its essence.
This essence is very real, and therein lies faith.
From the very beginning until now its name has never been forgotten.
Thus I perceive the creation.
How do I know the ways of creation?
Because of this.
