The greater your success, the greater your punishment.


“With greater success, comes stiffer scrutiny, higher bias, and extraordinary judgement, even if you have the greatest intentions. It’s a punishment for those who innovate and work hard, which makes you wonder if it’s better to be average.” – Jon Riki Karamatsu, March 19, 2016.

With this in mind, I no longer recommend any of the upcoming generations to enter public service in an elected or appointed position.  It’s not worth it.
