The wise project manager unclutters his mind and simplifies his work. By giving up trying to do the right thing, the project manager and the team will become far more fruitful.
Lao Tzu tells us:
In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of the Tao, every day something is dropped.
Less and less is done
Until non-action is achieved.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.
The world is ruled by letting things take their course.
It cannot be ruled by interfering.
