Consider beginnings

Do without doing. Act without action. Savor the flavorless. Treat the small as large, the few as many. Meet injury with the power of goodness. Study the hard while it is easy. Do big things while they are small. The hardest jobs in the world start out easy; the great affairs of the world start small. So the wise soul, by never dealing with great things, gets great things done. Now, since taking things too lightly makes them worth- less, and taking things too easy makes them hard, the wise soul, by treating the easy as hard, does not find any- thing hard. Lao Tzu
