when there is order, there is little to do

July 5, 2010

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.

– John Heider, The Tao of Leadership
