Regardless of the size of the project, Lidia and Michal’s level of involvement is superior. The couple is driven by challenge and always expands their solution capacity by simply being involved in each other’s thinking process. Yin-Yang can be thought of as complementary forces interacting to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the parts. Everything has both yin and yang aspects.
