Quadrupling Down in My Race Against Time – Race Against Time Part X


I have so much #gratitude for Starbucks @starbucks , especially the @waikelestarbucks @waikelepo because the baristas are so nice and the #vibe is good. I can #work there for 10 hours straight. Pictured here are some free samples: a brownie and the Pink Drink! Grateful ! Got my constant companion, my @apple #macbookpro #laptop ! 💻

For the past few years, I feel like almost every month or two, someone I know dies. My last poem was about racing against time. It’s the 9th time since 2004 that I’ve titled a post on my website “Racing Against Time.” We have to go all-out on what we want to do before our time in this realm expires. I’m super #thankful to have lived this long and experienced many things I envisioned #accomplishing but I still have so much more on my mind that I need to execute before I die. I’m quadrupling down on my work and going harder now! 💻

My friends, keep going, keep loving, and keep smiling! 😀

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Thank you so much to Hawaiian Electric and Drive Electric Hawaii for the power bank! I will make good use of it in my daily hustle on my projects as I move about in mass transit! I’ll never forget this moment.I’m super grateful!


Thank you so much to Hawaiian Electric @hawaiianelectric and Drive Electric Hawaii @driveelectrichi for the power bank, which I’ve been wanting for about 5 months!!! I’m super #grateful !!! I’ll make really good use of them in my daily #grind on my #work !!! I got them at First Hawaiian Bank’s @fhbhawaii 2019 First Hawaiian International Auto Show at the Hawaii Convention Center @hawaiiconvention on Sunday March 31, 2019. Now, more than ever, since I don’t drive, and instead, catch the bus to all my meetings and events, I’ve been needing one of these to recharge my @samsungmobile Galaxy S7 Edge, which I use for #business and personal use. A couple of times my #smartphone ran out of power while in transit. My friend Brandon Mitsuda @brandon_mitsuda gave me his since he already has his own.

I’ve been undergoing a lot of #anxiety for close to 4 years, working on #start-up projects. The fear of the uknown, what will happen in the future can really beat you down. Last night, I looked up on the Internet “How do you know you’re on the right path?” that led me to reading a bunch of articles and blogs on the subject. There’s so much we can’t control. I do my best to dissipate the dark cloud of #anxiety by working everyday on the things I can control, and being present and enjoying the #process the best I can since I get a high off of #learning , building my #skills , and bonding with people. 💻 📖

I wish you the best in your process and your #journey of ups and downs. I feel it’s better to give it your all and find out than to not try and wonder what could’ve happened. Also, cherish those positive people in your life who make you feel better. They make you feel like everything is going to be okay, like how my friend Brandon Mitsuda lifts my soul. As long as we’re still alive, we have another day to live fully. This is something to be grateful for!!! Crush it my friends!!! 😊 🙌

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Beef Burgundy


I cooked Beef Burgundy with my slow cooker and made mashed potatoes as a side on October 10, 2017.

Step by step to get back to peak performance in our lives


Sometimes it’s a struggle to maintain consistency on our goals, whether it be for our career or personal life. I’ve been feeling fatigued lately so my level of effort on my exercise, meditation, and fictional writing has dropped. My main focus has been on my business projects, but after that, I feel tired and sleepy. I forced myself to run outdoors 2 to 4 miles a couple of times this week, and meditated while lying in bed because of my lack of motivation, and this has helped a tiny bit to keep me moving forward. Whatever it takes to keep us going right? Today, Sept. 23, 2017, I woke up with my hair standing up, and put my exercise clothes on to motivate me to go to the gym. Step by step to get back to my highest level of performance. If you are feeling down, I support your little steps to get back to peak performance. I wish you the best in your efforts on your goals!!!

What I do on challenging days.


On challenging days, I ask myself, “What are one or two things I can do to make me feel good and accomplished for the day?” Then I execute.

Work at Starbucks


In the afternoon of Saturday September 2, 2017, I moved my work from my home to Starbucks in Waipio, Hawaii. I gave it a shot to try and finish an analysis on another redline of the contract for our land deal. I spent 4.25 hours, but it looks like I have to continue later. My energy level has been boosted though. I love my Apple MacBook Pro, which allows me to work anywhere and anytime!!! Let’s go some more!!!
