Just My Soul and I


Just my soul and I.

We talk and laugh.

Sometimes we cry.

We travel to the heavens with visions.

Clips of action of what could be.

We don’t need much.

Only ideas on how to get there.

Because we’re relentless in getting there.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 3/17/19 –

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!!!

My Cousin’s Wedding Rehearsal Dinner


My entire immediate family and most of my extended family attended the wedding rehearsal dinner for my cousin Laura at Alamo, California on 10/14/2018.

I have to make it clear, that I’m nothing if it weren’t for my parents and sisters. Now, I have my three nieces who inspire me to keep hustling on creating value for others and making our world more peaceful. On top of that, I’m lucky to have great uncles, aunties, and cousins. I love them all.

Consistency 


When we consistently work at our goals, our highest potential is revealed, and often times, we will attain things we’ve dreamt about. – Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/20/2017 –
