The Wise Fool is the brave soul and the adventuresome spirit who dares to think differently. He is an irreverent visionary who experiences life on his own terms. Historically, it was the job of the Wise Fool to question convention and authority, and break with traditional thinking. The Wise Fool approach to modern life means letting go of assumptions about how things shouldbe done, and finding innovative and alternative approaches to doing things better.
