Working in the field of professional and personal development, we often focus on soft skills and not hard skills. However, the soft skills are often the hardest skills for so many. But those are the skills that matter and prevail.
Water is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.
- Lao Tzu (600 BC)
