The 70% Threshold

Sensei Sandeep Desai on the 70 % threshold in Taoism...

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com...-70-threshold/
Quote:
At the heart of Tao philosophy is the 70% rule. It states that you should do a T’ai Chi movement to only 70% of your potential.
Staying within 70% of your capacity produces optimum physical accomplishment, simultaneously reducing psychological stress.
I found this interesting because medical science have also stated of a link between moderate exercise and longevity.

I know of a couple of athletes who died of a heart attack while going through rigorous physical regimens.

Similarly working at 70 percent capacity can also bring conditions of creativity, enjoyment of work and performing work mindfully.

Yes I agree. I feel I am being pushed beyond what I am comfortable of.

Glad that forum friends enjoyed the article on Taoism's 70 % threshold.

The link in the op is not working. Here is a new link to the article.

There are also other articles on Tai Chi by Sensei Desai in the same site.
