A sense of wonder, being still in movement, and the way to do more is to do less. These are the lessons we learn today in the episode.

Today we are talking with Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma the Language Consultant for the Cozy Grammar, poet, polyglot, teacher, tutor, magician, and author!

His three principles of life.

Learn to listen and then act.

Doing more means, paradoxically, doing less, more deeply.

Tough does not beat tender.
