Taoism, an ancient Chinese philosophy, is characterised by the concept of Yin and Yang – opposite and complementary forces – and stresses the importance of balance to ensure harmony. Using the wisdom of Tao, let us practise the following principles in today’s hectic and competitive work environment:
Know your talent. There is a purpose to everyone’s life and before we contemplate strategies and learn various techniques, we need to ask ourselves: What is my unique, inherent talent that nature has bestowed upon me? Instead of choosing a line of work and then attempting to train ourselves to fit the role, cultivate the talents you possess naturally.
