Do Less to Do More

Do Less to Do More

Most of us have a bias toward more studying, and less doing. We need to read more. Collect more information. Later on, we'll get to the doing.

Why We Learn

Why We Learn

This isn't for becoming better at poses. It's time for taking really good care of yourself, and becoming better at you.
