After being turned down for his dream job in the art industry, Julian suffered three long years as a crap Japanese speaker. He understands exactly what it’s like to feel like a total idiot every time you speak.

Two things: first, I'm updating all my existing books and recording new audio-versions (which will be available via an app). Second, starting later this year I'll be publishing a series of books less about learning English per-se, but about travel, culture, business and everything related to using English to do exciting stuff.(less)

30 Minutes that defined the future of Canada

Two things that fascinate me:

History.

And the 80/20 principle.

Not the only two things, to be sure. But they’re high on the list.

At the beginning of 2017, I was in Ottawa, Canada and I went to visit to the Canadian War Museum. I'll confess that I knew almost nothing about Canadian history. But one part of the "Early wars in Canada" exhibition caught my eye: "The Battle of the Plains of Abraham".

“You can't change or influence other people to any great degree. You can help educate them, but if you've got somebody who's being a real dickhead, then you're wasting your time trying to change them. All you can do is  change your reactions to them  and change the way you process what's happening inside of you. Because they can't hurt you without your permission.

I used to engage and show them examples of people in their own area who got amazing results. Their response? “Well, did they have [increasingly obscure criteria: moved around three times as a kid, eleven fingers, whatever]?”
