Tao is an Chinese ancient philosophy, it means The way, it is about truth in life, original in life, laws in life. The basic concept of Qi (energy), Yin(negative) and Yang (positive), law of nature and power of the soft is the strongest (like water) etc. Tao philosophy advocate harmony in life and it is very useful to be applied in business too.
In Chinese language wise, “Playing Tai Chi” is a Chinese slang, which means move around not getting to the point. In business, that means not telling the truth right away. In emotional life, that means “not refuse but not accept”. So when you do business with Chinese, sometimes there might be situation like “Da Tai Chi”, you got to be patient with it and try to find “yes or no” answer eventually.
