I chanced upon this gem on one of those days when I was just overwhelmed by a list of dozens of to- do tasks.
I found myself grappling with an infrastructure project that is completely unrelated to what I have done in the past and hence I just could not understand the technical details of what is going on. On the other hand, the team that I have is highly mature and usually they drive me, rather than the other way around. So, it was apt that I should come across this nugget of wisdom- “Conquer by Inaction” (well, the inaction is an exaggerated way of putting it, but it does get attention).
I guess this has some elements of chaos theory according to which there is no absolute “chaos”, rather it has some self- governing aspects to it.
