Coffee shops and my Macbook Pro makes work fun!


Coffee shops and my Macbook Pro makes work fun! Did some work at Starbucks in Ala Moana Hotel, Honolulu, Hawaii before my meeting with an engineer at Jodo Shu Hawaii on October 11, 2017.

Building Toy


On October 5, 2017, I had a lunch meeting at Ja Gal Chi Restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii with my friend who has the rights to launch a toy in the United States that can build things. In this picture, I made a three-legged dog. There are also large pieces for children’s furniture and accessories. I’m doing business development work for her.

Bad dream, but on the right path now


I just woke up from a bad dream where I was with one of the two former business partners who stole money from my other business partner and I. I woke up with my heart racing. I began thinking of my other bad experiences in my career, where certain judges and politicians punished me harder because of the high positions I held in government at a young age, to make an example of me before others and sometimes the public. Power and money play a role in making people do mean things against others. My good friend Brandon Mitsuda texted me this beautiful picture of Capri, Italy. I want to vacation there when things settle down. I feel much better. I know I’m on a better path now. I’m seeking peace within me. May peace be with all of you as well.

Step by step to get back to peak performance in our lives


Sometimes it’s a struggle to maintain consistency on our goals, whether it be for our career or personal life. I’ve been feeling fatigued lately so my level of effort on my exercise, meditation, and fictional writing has dropped. My main focus has been on my business projects, but after that, I feel tired and sleepy. I forced myself to run outdoors 2 to 4 miles a couple of times this week, and meditated while lying in bed because of my lack of motivation, and this has helped a tiny bit to keep me moving forward. Whatever it takes to keep us going right? Today, Sept. 23, 2017, I woke up with my hair standing up, and put my exercise clothes on to motivate me to go to the gym. Step by step to get back to my highest level of performance. If you are feeling down, I support your little steps to get back to peak performance. I wish you the best in your efforts on your goals!!!
