Dunkin Donuts Reward – Finished Legal & Business Analysis for a Land Deal


Yesterday, August 3, 2017, I treated myself to Dunkin Donuts as a reward after I finished drafting a 28-page legal and business analysis for a land deal my business partners and I are trying to execute for a start-up company we are building. I worked 3 days in a row at Starbucks in Waipio typing this document for 7 to 8 hours straight a day. Dunkin Donuts recently opened a store near Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii, making its return back to the State of Hawaii. I gave my mom 2.5 donuts today when she came by to drop off food she made.

What You Think You Become


“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Siddartha Gautama/Shakyamuni Buddha, (about 563 BCE/480 BCE –

A practice that can be applied to everything we do. Buddha is one of my biggest influencers to live a positive life.

Tenacity


If I had to choose one word that best describes how I live, it would be “tenacity.” When I know what I want to do, I lock onto my vision of achieving my goal and work at it every day. I aim for the highest level of what I’m dreaming of so even if I fall short, I would still be at a really good place in my journey of life. Tenacity is what drives me through my failures. My Pearl City High School soccer coach Ron Mata would tell us, “Play with tenacity! Like a bulldog that bites and doesn’t let go.”

Consistency is key in our journey.


Consistency is key in our journey towards making a dream a reality. Upon getting an idea, we act on it by planning, strategizing, and executing. We work at it day after day, and year after year, achieving all the little goals in order to attain the big ones. #quote #quotes #quotestoliveby #consistency #journey #idea #ideas #plan #planning #strategizing #strategy #executing #execute #work #habits #habit #dreams #dream #patience #tenacity #relentless #pursuit #drive #goal #goals #reality #achieve #positivity #desire #jonrikikaramatsu #jonriki

Misty Copeland inspired my day – I wrote for 7.5 hours on my counter-offer document.


Yesterday morning of March 8, 2017, as I prepared for my day, I turned on my smart TV to watch an educational video on entrepreneurship, business, culture, or psychology, which I do so daily, when by chance I came across a video about Misty Copeland, the first African American principal ballerina for a major ballet company, which was very inspiring. The story was fitting since it was International Women’s Day.

I ended up having my best day writing for this year so far for either fiction or nonfiction. I wrote for a total of 7.5 hours broken into 3 sessions to complete a 12-page counter offer document for an agreement consisting of over 300 pages that I’m working on for an aviation development project I have with my business partners. I’m estimating¬†that I probably wrote about 3,500 to 4,000 words for my document today that had a total of 6,466 words.

Here’s the video of Misty Copeland that jump-started my day even though I’m still feeling weak from the illness that I had the past week.

Later I found Misty Copeland’s Under Armor commercial that’s inspiring as well. ¬†Here it is:
