The Way is the confluence of ten thousand things:
it is valuable to the competent,
and guardian to the incompetent.

Fine words are essential for marketing.
Classy suits are essential for negotiation.
But, those who are incompetent at these things:
why should they be eliminated?

When a new management team is installed:
rather than issuing them a corner office
and a reserved parking space,
better to show them the Way.

The Way is as true now as in ancient days:
those who seek may find,
and those who fail may redeem themselves.
Thus, it is valuable to the world.

 


chapter notes:

In converting to a development/corporate context, the management perks have been considerably downgraded!
