4: Positive Masters Show Podcast – Example Definition of Passion Project – Audiogram


Here’s a clip from Episode 4 of the Positive Masters Show Podcast – Matching Your Passions With Your Projects.

In defining passion for my passion projects, I came up with the following that may be helpful for you:

  1. Something that you enjoy
  2. Something that’s important to you
  3. Something that you can potentially provide for others

Number 3 may not apply to all passion projects, but if you can provide value for others, it can bring you more joy.

Disclaimer for Face Coverings⁠

To the full extent permissible by law, +positive masters+ disclaims all warranties on face coverings , expressed or implied, including but not limited to, implied warranties that the face coverings will prevent users from contracting germs, other contaminants, and infectious diseases such as but not limited to, viruses and the common cold.⁠

To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.

Pursuant to the CDC, cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under two years old, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The cloth face coverings recommended by the CDC are not N-95 respirators or surgical masks. Per CDC guidance, those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), N-95 respirators, surgical masks, and cloth face coverings do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants, nor do they completely eliminate the risk of illness or death. The FDA, along with the U.S. Surgeon General, both agree with and reference the CDC’s recommendation that members of the public use simple cloth face coverings when in a public setting to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, since this will help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.

As recommended by the CDC, cloth face coverings should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use. According to the CDC’s guidance, a washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering. Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands their immediately after removing their face covering.

On behalf of all of us at +positive masters+, we thank you for your understanding of this disclaimer and the recommendations by the CDC, U.S. Surgeon General, and FDA. Together, we can help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus and other infectious diseases. Our cloth face masks are one-size fits most for adults. As mentioned above, our cloth face masks are recommended by the CDC, U.S. Surgeon General, and FDA to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus; however, they do not completely protect you from contracting germs, other contaminants, and infectious diseases.

For more information on the novel coronavirus and face coverings, you can visit the CDC’s website at www.cdc.gov, the U.S. Surgeon General’s website at www.hhs.gov, and the FDA’s website at www.fda.gov.

Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot.


Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot.

Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot.

Try tweaking your personal life and business to make a pivot.

A couple of days ago, I walked around my neighborhood with my friend Claire Ann Niibu @bizcoachclaire who I’ve known since our time as students at Pearl City High School. She’s a business coach who consults in person and offers online courses such as accounting at www.bizcoachclaire.com. We shared our latest happenings in our lives. “I feel like I reached my limits,” I explained. Throughout 2020, I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed and worn down with my business projects and personal challenges. To top it off, like many of you, the Coronavirus has made things worse. How can I feel like this when I apply so many psychology, philosophy, and mindset practices in my life? I share these practices on my personal blog here at www.jonriki.com, on +positive masters+ blog at www.positivemasters.com, and on +positive masters+ and my social media platforms. Yes, I still go through my ups and downs. In my most challenging times, even with the full force of all the mindset practices I utilize, sometimes all I need is a motivational comment from a friend to snap me out of my dark cloud.

Claire told me to try to make some tweaks in my life and business. Using the word “tweak” total shifted my perception of what I needed to do. Rather than being overwhelmed by the huge mountain I have to climb that’s way out in the distance, I started seeing the different trails in front of me. Maybe, I’ll take a different path, or heck, I should go off of these paths and travel where no one really goes. I’ll wear different shoes with more support. As I hike, instead of only listening to music, I’ll mix in some motivational podcasts. Hmmm, these tweaks are making the journey more fun! I’m noticing the little yellow flowers in the green meadow swaying with the breeze and the puffy white clouds floating across the light blue sky. Reaching the top of the snowcapped mountain is just a bonus. It’s the journey that makes life interesting.

Likewise, I need to see the beauty of my journey in my career. I love learning. Therefore, I have to uncover exciting knowledge that will spark fresh ideas. I get a high off of building new skills. Thus, I need to push the boundaries to try different things that will develop the skills that I need to execute on my ideas. Yup, trial and error, that’s how we evolve. Numerous of iterations and tweaks – that’s what we need to do to keep moving towards our dreams.

Wishing you the best in your journey of personal growth!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon Riki Karamatsu

Don’t blow things up out of proportion or minimize them.


Don't blow things up out of proportion or minimize them.

Don’t blow things up out of proportion or minimize them.

Cognitive Distortions – Part 6

Don’t blow things up out of proportion or minimize them.

When you fail, don’t exaggerate your errors and imperfections. Don’t blow them up way out of proportion because doing so will cause you unnecessary grief. Everyone make mistakes. Failure plays a huge role in your learning process; however, you may fear it as you get older. Constantly remind yourself that failure is part of your growth. If you fall down, you can get back up again stronger by learning from your mistakes. When you tried to walk as baby, you would fall down often, sometimes getting injured; yet, you kept getting up and trying again until walking became second nature.

Products, services, and philosophical and scientific theories are proven through trial and error. Thomas Edison went through thousands of prototypes before he was able to successfully create the light bulb. Henry Ford became financially broke 5 times and was advised to stay away from the automobile industry. He persisted until he successfully developed automobiles for the commercial market.

Even Albert Einstein struggled. As a student, he performed so poorly that he nearly decided to drop out and sell life insurance. After graduating from the Swiss Polytechnic Institute at 21 years old, Einstein had to work many odd jobs to sustain himself. His father died believing he was a failure. Einstein was emotionally crushed. Eventually, he became employed as a patent clerk. He would review patents and analyze mathematical equations daily, and he loved it. Einstein’s passion for math led him down the path to becoming one of the greatest scientists in world history. This example shows how failure can lead you to your passions.

Some failures are out of your control such as a car exploding and crashing into your vehicle, causing you to miss an important meeting that that ended badly with the investor leaving. Or, like our current situation with the Coronavirus, a pandemic spreads, causing the economy to shut down, which leads to you losing money. In these situations that are out of your control, don’t exaggerate the errors and imperfections. Instead, always have gratitude for the positive – you are still alive.

Neither should you exaggerate the errors and imperfections of others. By doing so, you will lash out undue judgment. This is where having empathy for others can tame your distorted view on the failure of others. Remind yourself that you could fail just as bad or worse. If you place hell on others, be ready to receive the same wrath from people when you fail at the same thing.

When I was a litigation attorney, I was once stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours on the freeway, on my way to Honolulu District Court from West Oahu because of an accident ahead of me. I arrived at the courtroom with 5 minutes before it was to start; but the judge was already sitting in her chair gaveling the start of the hearing. She berated me without giving me a chance to apologize. A year later, that same judge was almost a half an hour late to another court hearing. She sat down and oversaw the hearing like nothing happened. She didn’t even apologize to any of us. In this real life example, the judge blew things way out of proportion for me even though I had 5 minutes more before the court was to begin; whereas, she treated her tardiness like it never happened. Moral of the story, don’t blow things out of proportion for the errors of others either. You will cause unnecessary stress on your target and others around you. When you make the same mistake, shit will start flying back at you, whether it is uncomfortable stares or more. People like that also seem to have less friends because they hold high standards on others that doesn’t apply to themselves.

Lastly, when it comes to your strengths, don’t minimize them. For instance, when you achieve a nice score on your test, don’t minimize your success by telling yourself that you were just lucky when you studied your butt off. When your third attempt at a start-up company finally succeeds, don’t pass it off as simply being lucky. No, you worked darn hard for many years to get where you are. You sacrificed by living with little money to build your business. Embrace your success. Don’t shrink them. Nor should you minimize the success of others. They also sacrificed a lot to achieve them. Be happy for them. If you’re minimizing yourself now, let me say this, “You’re great, and you deserve those wins! Keep crushing it!”

Play the ultimate game, in which you can go anywhere.


Play the ultimate game, in which you can go anywhere.

Play the ultimate game, in which you can go anywhere.

They say, “Go to college, get a job.”
“Be clean cut, don’t be a slob.”
So many people showing off what they’ve got.
Some of it’s real, some of it’s not.

Why not be who you are?
Work from your heart and follow your own chart.
Long hair or short hair, who cares.
Play the ultimate game, in which you can go anywhere.

– poem, +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 2/27/2020 –

Are you feeling pressured to do what you think society expects you to do? What do you want to do? You’ve got one life. Before you know it, you’ll be dead.

Why be in the thick of craziness, stressed by busyness and a wide range of people and their demands when you can find a way to create greater success within yourself and among a few nurturing people.

Your quality of life is the most important. You can choose your path of purpose and define your success. You can reinvent yourself and stack new skills, knowledge, and relationships on top of your existing ones. You can create value for others by yourself or with a few positive people. Your work is a game because it’s fun, and the people you work with are your friends because you genuinely care for one another.

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?

Get-together with my friends Jerry L. Chang and Dick Kim!


I only catch the #bus for #meetings. Yesterday was different. As usual, I do #work on my @samsungmobile #smartphone and @apple #macbook pro while riding the bus, but I was super excited because I was meeting with my friends Jerry L. Chang @mastif8 and Dick Kim for a get-together @shirokiyajvw !!! Jerry and I served in the Hawaii State House of Representatives together. He is also a real estate developer and former administrator for the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We have so much fun memories, especially our adventurous travels to other states and countries. He’s a great statesman and has so much positive energy. Jerry has been a huge mentor in my life!!! 😊

Dick is an import/export businessman doing trade between the United States and many countries. He is a very kind person, and I enjoy listening about how he sees opportunities in business. He has also influenced my life as such a positive and kind person!!! 😊

I’m so lucky to have wonderful experiences with great people like Jerry and Dick!!!

The Public Doesn’t Know You Like I Do


I dedicate the following poem to all of the politicians, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who are filled with love, compassion, and empathy who are facing the darkness that leaches around power:

You do what you do because you want to make this world better.

But when you get there, you’re judged, criticized, and taken down.

Your work for the community gets overshadowed by whether or not your personal life is stable or broken.

They get excited when you make any mistakes or are just near any mistakes.

They don’t care if you were wronged by other powers out to get you.

They label you when they don’t know the truth.

They smile when they prepare the chains.

I saw the tears in your eyes – you don’t have to hide them.

I know how much you care for others.

The public doesn’t know you like I do.

I just want you to know, that my love is here for you.
