My friend & work pal Miah got me this awesome placemat with a graphic design of San Francisco from a museum in the city!


Yesterday, my friend & work pal Miah got me this awesome placemat with a graphic design of San Francisco from a museum in the city. Since I enjoy creating graphic designs, this is super inspiring! The colors really energizes my spirit!

Practice: Mindfulness & gratitude! Use other art as an #inspiration for our own art!

Practices: (1) Focus on what I can control; (2) Work on one thing at a time to maximize my productivity; and (3) Be present and put aside my fear of what may or may not happen tomorrow.


My anxiety level is up today so seeing this post by @riskhappy is motivating me to snap out of my terrible feeling. I’m going to focus and work on what I can control. First, my appointments and work I have to finish dealing with my immediate deadline, followed by another deadline, and then another, and then paying a big bill. The first is extremely important because if I succeed in executing it, I can complete what I need to do for the other three areas in the short-run and long-run.

Practices: (1) Focus on what I can control; (2) Work on one thing at a time to maximize my productivity; and (3) Be present and put aside my fear of what may or may not happen tomorrow.

What are your strategies to alleviate anxiety and stress? I hope you’re doing well! ❤

It feels so good to be present and take in the beauty around us.

Darkness is a major motivator!!!


Different things can trigger our darkness such as the deaths of those we love, the deterioration of our body and mind, negative people, negative events, and failure. Our challenges and the fact that we are impermanent can be a powerful motivator for us to make the most of what we have now. Love everything with an awakened mind: the beautiful sky, your loving family and friends, and your passion projects. 😊

If you ever need to move furniture and appliances, the Shoulder Dolly is amazing!!!


If you ever need to move furniture and appliances, the Shoulder Dolly @shoulderdolly_official is amazing!!! On May 8 and 9, 2019, my friend and I was able to move really big furniture with this product that would have been very difficult without it. I’m super grateful for the entrepreneur(s) and workers at or contracted with Shoulder Dolly who created such a value!!!

Here’s a product that solves a challenge and sparks joy!!! Mahalo Shoulder Dolly @shoulderdolly_official !!! Great job!!!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Want to be productive? Grow your hair long and/or closely watch children grow up.


Here’s two strategies I use for my productivity: (1) Grow your hair long and cut it when you finish some of your goals; and/or (2) Have your sibling or siblings or an immediate family member have children because you will watch very closely how fast they grow up, which will make you work harder to get things done.

We can grow our hair long anytime. I’ve been doing it since I was a teenager, even when I was a politician and government attorney. As for our loved ones having children, well, this is a bit more tricky. Have fun with this strategy!

Here are pictures of my 10-month old niece and I with our long bangs on October 20, 2018 in San Mateo, California.

Crush all your goals my friends!!!
