I work on what I can today


To distract me from worrying about tomorrow, I work on what I can today.

At times we decline opportunities to pursue our dreams, which causes us stress. I’ve been through it with my political and legal career, and now I’m going through it with my recent goals in the private sector. Focusing on what I can work on now has helped me move forward on my journey, even through the roughest parts. I wish you the best in your journey. I’m feeling you and cheering for you!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Confined In My Mind


Confined in my mind.

Let me out, I want to scream.

Cutting my own chains.

Happy people don’t worry or get angry about trivial things.


Happy people don’t worry or get angry about trivial things. Unless you or your loved one is about to die, what you’re mad or anxious about isn’t so bad. Be like water and adjust.

Appreciate the simple things in our lives!


Simplicity is in our core. If we lose our appreciation for this, we lose our being.

Build Value and Peace


Our “why” is what will motivate us to provide value for others.

Our desire to learn and ability to work with others will give us the “how.”

Our daily work and patience towards the long game will determine our “when.”

The above is our sweat equity for our vision.

If . . . no, when we build our own abundance of capital, we can add it to our sweat equity to power a value-making system that creates jobs, services, and products for others.

Another influential practice for a human is to always be mindful and grateful, and consistently loving, compassionate, and empathetic towards all beings and the universe. Enlightening oneself to transcend beyond the suffering of life and death.

Building value and peace. May they both be with you.

Solitude, Deep Self-Reflection, and Meditation


Solitude, deep self-reflection, and meditation can bring us great power by opening up our energy towards the basics of our existence: love, empathy, compassion, mindfulness, and gratitude, which transcend our physical existence. Everything else is either a bonus or unnecessary noise.
