Romanticize Life


My future me smiled.

More to do before you’re dead.

Romanticize life.

Spark Them Up With Love


Spark them up with love.

All one needs is a flicker.

It will light the way.

Motivate Myself


Started my early morning of February 13, 2018 with some oatmeal with banana, green tea latte, and a motivational entrpreneurial video. My goals for this week: update the business plan for our FBO company, complete 1,800 words for a total of 70,000 words for my 2nd novel, draft performance agreement and partner agreement for a concert I have a minority interest in, write the strategy for a variance request for the development of homes for a development and construction company I’m working with, craft some policies regarding land use for an agency I’m doing volunteer work for, run 4+ miles 4x, and review latest construction repairs for Jodo Shu Hawaii.

Let Go, You Must.


Desire, you feel.

Losing what you want, you fear.

Love, you may.

Let go, you must.

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 –
