“Wu Wei doesn’t try. It doesn’t think about it. It just does it. And when it does, it doesn’t appear to do much of anything. But Things Get Done.”
— Benjamin Hoff, Tao of Pooh

Today’s Excerpt:

What do you rarely get tired of doing?

When we’re in flow it feels like we could keep doing what we’re doing forever. Flow is similar to the Taoist concept of wu wei (pronounced “woo way”), which can be translated as “effortless action” or “not forcing.”
