Action less Action and the Practice of GovernanceWu-WeiWu-Wei is a term related with the Chinese concept Taoism. Wu-Wei can be literally translated to Action less - Action. It a mental and physical state of a person when all actions are driven by internal motivation and there is zero contribution of unwilling, enforced and unnatural actions. The believers of Wu-Wei had a strong belief that the highest performance and positive outcome from a task can only be achieved through motivational and naturally driven energies. Natural ways are the easiest and most comfortable to attain happiness. Wu-Wei attributes man-made laws for the society as unnatural action and must be avoided. This can be an extended and more diversified translation of patience and patience in carrying out a task and classifying any rashness and haste to be unnatural and harmful for people and society as a whole [SOTAR (2000)]. Punishments and negative reinforcements in class rooms can be considered an example of anti Wu-Wei where students are punished if they do not complete their homework which results in disciplinary behaviors of students. We-Wei teaches to avoid any forced act like punishment is
