When you act by inaction, positive results occur—despite you not doing anything! It is a difficult concept to wrap your head around, yet it works.
Curbing your desire, on the other hand, will in turn help you carry out the first step of this habit. Once you need little and want less, you will act less.
Do not do.
Act without acting. For example, when you do not praise those deserving of it, you can keep people uncompetitive. When you do not place value on treasures, you can keep people from stealing.
Need little, want less.
Curb your desire—whether it is materialistic desire or even the desire to build a certain quality in yourself.
