What are your strategies for your goals? Do you include small to medium projects with your large projects?


Often times we’re so focused, even obsessed on #winning the big business projects, the marathons, that we bypass the smaller ones that could play a huge role in building us up. For me, the big business projects take a long time and until then, I don’t make any income from them. Recently, I’ve had to adjust and include small to medium projects in order to get quicker turnarounds for income to help sustain myself financially. It can be stressful at times not knowing the future.

What are your strategies for your goals? Do you include small to medium projects with your large projects?

Work with someone who will motivate you!


Our mindset is key to our daily hustle. When we have a setback, it’s challenging to maintain our optimism. Our workflow gets interrupted by our disappointment and anxiety. 💻

Having someone positive to work with can be a huge factor. Lately, I’ve been working with my friend Claire at Starbucks @starbucks who I became friends with while at Pearl City High School. She’s building an E-commerce business. We keep motivating each other to keep pushing forward every day. We place tough deadlines on ourselves in order to accelerate our progress. I’m so happy to have reconnected with Claire! I don’t feel as alone as before, working on projects that face a high level of risk .

Keep moving forward on your vision every day! If you can find a positive work friend who motivates you, even better! 😃

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

You said, “Friends are forever.”


You said, “Friends are forever.”

“Lovers never last.”

Now where are we?

We’ve faded into a blurry past.

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!

Growth Mindset


I’m a strong believer in having a positive mindset in order to be happier and more fulfilled in life.  In this post, I would like to point out the importance of us having a growth mindset, which is believing that our abilities and intelligence can be developed.  We can develop our knowledge and skills by reading and practicing everyday.  The more we work on our knowledge and skills, the better we get.  If we keep up this daily practice, over time, we may attain the knowledge and become very good at the skills we envisioned ourselves achieving.

I like to schedule in my Google calendar blocks of time to learning and building skills and I color code them according to the subject matter.  I count each 30-minute period of learning or practicing as a “win” in my Count My Wins program I created for myself.  This program gives me a natural high from the happy chemicals released when I finish each 30-minute self-development session. I’m a very curious person so I push myself even in areas I’m unfamiliar with.  I really want to become a better person mentally, spiritually, and physically.

Have fun in your self-development!  Crush it!

3 of my daily practices: growth mindset, mindfulness, and gratitude.

(I took a picture of these plants and trees in Waikele, Hawaii on March 12, 2019. They represent growth in our growth mindset practice. I’m always mindful of the beauty around me. I’m grateful to experience such simple pleasures.)
