The Taoists have a principal they refer to as Wu Wei, which in simple terms translates to ‘Action without Action’. I won’t profess a deep understanding of Eastern Philosophy, unfortunately my frequent attempts over the years to study have been hamstrung by a propensity to match books with bottles of red. This inevitably leads to a 1am jolt with a stained t-shirt, a sore neck and all of 3 pages having been read. The concept of Wu Wei symbolises the way we’ve structured our lives and as such our businesses. We didn’t set out to build a large service provision business in Fuse, nor did we seek out our relationships with Villeré or Little Acre Foods. The Hagen Arms waited 170 years for Wilco and I to impulsively buy it… and will have to wait another few to renovate it. There’s a spirit of generosity in these relationships that can only come from a natural flow, whether they be commercial or personal. Not sure where mi casa es mi casa fits into this philosophy but we’ll put that down to Cultural Anthropology… another 3 page, at best, read of mine.
