Do Your Job, Then LET GO

He who stands on tiptoe
doesn't stand firm.
He who rushes ahead
doesn't go far.
He who tries to shine
dims his own light.
He who defines himself
can't know who he really is.
He who has power over others
can't empower himself.
He who clings to his work
will create nothing that endures.

If you want to accord with the Tao,
just do your job, then let go.

Lao Tzu

One of my favourite sayings from the Tao Te Ching

Great words, so much to learn from these.

Btw, I am always curious to know, how do you go on writing such interesting and useful stuff. How do u feel motivated to do that?

I know this is a blog, where I can find motivating and inspiring things, whenever I need it.
