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!!!

Take the Steps Ahead


Take the steps ahead.

Detach from the thunderstorms.

We have umbrellas.

Solitude Heals Me


Solitude heals me.

Free from the system’s shackles.

Far from darkened hearts.

Romanticize Life


My future me smiled.

More to do before you’re dead.

Romanticize life.

Reach the Superstars


Pierce the atmosphere.

Broken worlds are behind us.

Reach the superstars.

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 –
