“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is a paradox: what is soft is strong.”― Lao Tzu
How do you get things done? Each of us has a unique way we move in the world and knock things off our to-do list. For years I had one way of accomplishing. Then, a wise mentor noticed my constant striving in my early 30s and stopped me in my tracks to introduce me to a new concept. This week I’m exploring the question, “Do You Push or Allow Things to Happen?” Check out my 2 min. video below and join me
