My little blue Daruma for my learning goals!


Attached to my REI @rei Bookpacker Plus #backpack is a little blue Daruma I bought in Japan some years ago. A Daruma is a Japanese handmade doll. When you make a #goal , you color one eye. When you achieve your goal, you color in the other eye. Notice how the doll is round. If it gets knocked down, it’ll get back up. That’s how we should be with our #goals – #tenacious and #determined . I read that a blue Daruma is for our #learning goals. For me, learning is extremely important because we can create value for others by mixing our #ideas with the #knowledge we attain. If we can learn 1% or more everyday, we can surprise ourselves on how far we can go! I enjoy products like Daruma dolls to #motivate me to keep working towards my #vision !

Have fun in your learning process!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

I’m super grateful for my REI Bookpacker Plus from my law school days!


I’m super grateful for my REI Bookpacker Plus @rei from my law school days! It’s so comfortable and sturdy for walking a few miles here and there and traveling in mass transit on land and in air. It has a lot of space and small compartments to hold things. In this day and age, we can produce content on the go with a laptop, smart phone, and a great backpack to carry everything.

Here, I finished working at Starbucks at Ala Moana Hotel @alamoanahotel on 4/11/2019.

Daily Practice: Mindfulness and Gratitude!

Our mindset is everything!


Our mindset is everything. A positive mindset affects us tremendously and everyone we interact with. Here are 3 examples:

1. If we have a positive outlook, our problems are seen as challenges.

2. With a positive mindset, our bad events are interpreted as as our inciting incidents for our hero’s journey.

3. With an #empathic #practice, when people attack us, we look deeper in their souls and realize they are suffering within themselves, so we wish them to awaken to practices that can make them happier.

The list goes on and on.

My daily practices: positive mindset and music! I have my @bose #headphones on and rocking it!

Wishing you the best in your daily practice for a happier life!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Enjoy your music and use it to lift your spirit and motivate you for your passion projects !!!


I love #music !!! I listen to it everyday. It inspires me in my #creativewriting , lifts my soul when I’m feeling down, and celebrates with me when I achieve my #goals !!!

#electronicdancemusic is a favorite of mine because of the upbeat sound, which helps me tremendously in staying #positive in life! Hence, my past participation in producing #edm #concerts !!!

I listen to #classical and #instrumental music for deep thinking #work for #business and #law.

#reggae and #hawaiianmusic is for when I want to chill.

I love #80smusic because it reminds me of my good times when I was a kid and teen.

I enjoy #lovesongs because I love #writing and #reading #stories with #romance in it. I also love watching #romanticmovies . Heck, we all want to be romantically in love right?!!!

When I’m being criticized in public because of my past career in #politics , I listen to #hiphop and #rock ! I listen to these genres for fun too!

There are many more types of music I listen to that helps my soul. I love it!!!

Enjoy your music and use it to lift your #spirit and #motivate you for your #passion #projects !!!

I’m pictured here wearing my wireless #bose #headphones from my friend Ryan Sanada.

My daily practice: listen to music!

Lunch with Sofia Kim!


Today, Wednesday March 6, 2019, I had a nice lunch meeting with Sofia Kim @sofiasoheekim @sofia_sohee at Seoul Tofu House @seoul_tofu_waikiki in Waikiki, Hawaii!!! The tofu soup or soon du bu was delicious! Check this restaurant out! Yummy!

If anyone needs branding and marketing for their business, Sofia Kim @sofiasoheekim is really good! She and I are into marketing and branding restaurants, events, and other business. Sofia also did radio marketing for my business partner and friend since college: DJ, promoter, and engineer G-Spot or Greg Dehnert @gspot808 and I when we produced electronic dance music concerts. Sofia can speak English, Korean, and Japanese. She also blogs on food, restaurants, business, and lifestyle.
