Some of the surprise reasons that so many enjoy Tai Chi is its depth and "unplug-abiltiy". If you're wondering what we mean take a look at the excerpt from Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss. This great book includes answers to the same set of eleven questions from many successful people. See Steve Pressfield comments below.
The disease of our time is that we live on the surface. We're like the Platte River, a mile wide and an inch deep. I always said, " If you want to become a billionaire, invent something that will allow people to indulge their own Resistance". Somebody did invent it. It's called the Internet. Social Media. That wonderland where we can flit from one superficial, jerk-off distraction to another, always remaining on the surface, never going deeper that an inch. Real work and real satisfaction come from the opposite of what the web provides. They come from going deep into something - the book you're writing, the album, the movie and staying there for a long, long time. (we would add Tai Chi to this list)
