13: Positive Masters – Study & Work with Me. Relaxing Rain. 1-Hour Study & Work Session.


13: Positive Masters – Study & Work with Me. Relaxing Rain. 1-Hour Study & Work Session.

Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects. In this video, let’s study and work together for a 1-hour Pomodoro (study and work session) with the sound of soothing rain. 

In the intro, I talk about the importance of managing your energy in order to be productive on your studies and work. Then we dive into our studies and work along to the sound of soothing rain in the background. 

I’m happy to have you as my study and work partner. Together, we can push through our ups and downs in our quest to improve ourselves and create value for others. We can’t control outside influences, but we can control our effort to learn, develop our skills, strengthen our mindset, and bolster our relationships. That is my mission and the mission of Positive Masters. 

Enjoy Positive Masters’ blog, podcast, videos, and products here at https://positivemasters.com to strengthen your mindset and build your passion projects to boost your happiness and counter any anxiety, sadness, or anger you may be experiencing. 

I’m a lawyer, small business person, and retired politician from Hawaii. My passion projects are writing fiction and creating content about mindset and mental health. 

Wishing you the best! 

With Warmest Aloha, 

Jon Riki Karamatsu

12: Positive Masters – Study & Work with Me


12: Positive Masters – Study & Work with Me

Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects. In this video, let’s study and work together for a 1-hour Pomodoro (study and work session) with the sound of calm lapping water in the background. 

In the intro, I talk about the value of writing a daily action plan. By writing down your plan and executing it, you can predict your future for the day ahead of you. Not everything you predict you can do will happen because you and all humans often believe you can achieve more than is possible. You will see this happening very often in your productivity system. Therefore, when you ask others to do work, have empathy and understanding on the work you request to get done. Often times, the time you want to get your work done is not realistic.  

Growth mindset people and generalists are people who do their best to learn all they can in their business and craft, so when they ask others to do the work, they understand the amount of time and effort it takes because they’ve done the work before.  

In contrast, barkers, people who just bark orders and other individuals who don’t do the work, have no clue on the time and effort it takes to finish work they request. Such people must understand the level of time and effort needed for the work to get done through those doing the work. 

In this video, I didn’t mention the unique visual I have for applying my daily action plan for my audacious projects, but I thought I mention it here: In order to get across the dark, scary unknown of your vision of your future self, you have to connect the dots to get across it. Each dot will appear when you come up with the next small logical action to connect an existing dot with the new one. Sometimes the dots will connect. Other times, they won’t. At times, you’ll have to come up with another idea, which is your next new dot. Maybe this time you’ll connect the dots. In other scenarios, you’ll have to connect dots backwards and sidewards before you can connect dots that move you forward. This takes patience and persistence. There are no short cuts. Great achievements are possible only with a patient and resilient mindset. 

Have fun in our study and work session! Let’s keep rocking it my friends!

1: Positive Masters Show – You Can Bring People Together Through Your Art – Audiogram


In this clip of Episode 1 of the Positive Masters Show podcast, I mention how you can bring people together through your art. Art forms such as novels, poetry, theatre, movies, music, designs, and drawings, can bring out the emotions of your audience and make them connect with your story that may have a deep message on issues like war, discrimination, racism, physical violence, verbal abuse, bullying, suicide, and mental health. If you can make someone care about your character when they normally wouldn’t but for your art, that’s huge! Now they have empathy and compassion for that character and all the people that fits into that category of your character. Through your art, you can spread love and peace!

My friends, if you’re going through a slump, I feel you. There are days, I get up and question myself. “Why do I keep going?” When I restate my personal mission statement, I’m empowered by my “why,” so I keep doing my best. Sending positive energy to you! 🙌

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.
