Celebrate the Small Wins!


Celebrate the small wins and the big wins. I’ve been analyzing government policies consisting of 679 pages and other related documents for an agreement I’m working on. I’m almost done typing my analysis document. For motivation, I had a chocolate dipped ice cream at McDonald’s in Pearl City, Hawaii with my friend Brandon Mitsuda on June 13, 2017.

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.

Misty Copeland inspired my day – I wrote for 7.5 hours on my counter-offer document.


Yesterday morning of March 8, 2017, as I prepared for my day, I turned on my smart TV to watch an educational video on entrepreneurship, business, culture, or psychology, which I do so daily, when by chance I came across a video about Misty Copeland, the first African American principal ballerina for a major ballet company, which was very inspiring. The story was fitting since it was International Women’s Day.

I ended up having my best day writing for this year so far for either fiction or nonfiction. I wrote for a total of 7.5 hours broken into 3 sessions to complete a 12-page counter offer document for an agreement consisting of over 300 pages that I’m working on for an aviation development project I have with my business partners. I’m estimating that I probably wrote about 3,500 to 4,000 words for my document today that had a total of 6,466 words.

Here’s the video of Misty Copeland that jump-started my day even though I’m still feeling weak from the illness that I had the past week.

Later I found Misty Copeland’s Under Armor commercial that’s inspiring as well.  Here it is:

Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head.


Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head while calls and messages keep coming in. So much so that I made an error the other day on one of my tasks. Studies have shown that multi-tasking reduces our performance. It’s much better to focus on one task at a time to maximize our output and results.

With all the different projects and goals that I have to accomplish, I think my mind is going as fast as this song “Alone” by Marshmello.
