Where do the good boys go to hide away?

Maybe the problem isn’t that there are no good guys left — maybe the problem is that you’re looking entirely too hard for them.

The Chinese have a word for this: wui wei, best translated as “not forcing.” Wu wei implies that action shouldn’t require lots of effort; rather, action should flow effortlessly, much as a cloud effortlessly floats across the sky.

The Japanese have a word for this too: judo, the “gentle way.” It’s a similar concept that laid the foundation for an entire martial art form.

Maybe there are plenty of good guys out there. Maybe you just need to relax.
