The Tao of Leadership (Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching Adapted for a New Age) - John Heider


3 Takeaways

1) 78. Soft & Strong - "Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock." You must be fluid and always adapting, while remaining true to who you are. Water raises and lowers, crashes and stills but in the end water is always true to its make up. Remember: what is soft is strong

2) 62. Whether You Know It or Not - "Even without the light of consciousness, people grow and improve." Remember: Life's process unfolds naturally

3) 16. Giving Up Selfishness - "To become more profound, give up your selfishness. Let go of your efforts to be perfect or rich or secure or admired. Such efforts only limit you. They block your universality." Remember: Your deeper self knows that you are one with everything anyways.
