There should be no personal wins and no personal losses in project team work. The wise project manager knows that the only thing that matters is the team. If the project manager nurtures the team they will be successful.
Lao Tsu tells us:
When the Tao is in the universe,
The horses haul manure.
When the Tao is absent from the universe,
War horses are bred outside the city.
There is no greater sin than desire,
No greater curse than discontent,
No greater misfortune than wanting something for oneself.
Therefore he who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
