Always keep your eyes open. Keep watching. Because whatever you see can inspire you.

If you flash back over the course of your life, you can pinpoint a couple moments that probably seemed innocuous at the time but which ultimately became catalytic in terms of where you are now.

Something connected in those moments that planted an idea deep inside which has flourished over the course of time in ways that you probably did not expect when you encountered them.

Life facilitates so many different experiences, it would be hard in advance to know for certain which are the ones that will ultimately stimulate us to grow and explore new territory.

If we walk through our daily existence with our eyes open wide and our brain receptive to that which we encounter, we are considerably more likely to find those particular stimuli which are capable of triggering our internal excitement and which ultimately accelerate us into new territory.

I think a lot of people fall into the category of same old same old and ultimately, their horizons narrow over time and familiarity breeds less curiosity and more acceptance.

The Illusion Factory has always worked to hire promising young minds as they are coming out of college and university. At first blush, the benefit would appear to be going in favor of the student. But, last night, as I read the article down below, I reflected on the fact that, were it not for one of the young minds at The Illusion Factory pointing me at a new thing called Second Life about 17 years ago, I would not have been tracking the metaverse. Having an opportunity to keep an open mind and surround myself with stimulating people is probably my single greatest asset in life. If that person had not pointed out this new opportunity, we would not be working on the Sizzleverse at this point in time😊

Happy Friday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
