What exactly is your relationship with time? 

Is time your friend? Or your adversary? 

Does it force you to hone your skills? 

Or does it preclude you from having sufficient resources to fully build your arsenal of opportunities? 

Are you continuously seeking more time? Or are you trying to stop time in its tracks? 

Every one of these variables are critical to your ability to navigate your place in the world with efficiency and poise so that you will make the very best use of the time you have as a three-dimensional creature living in this three-dimensional illusion, we call Life. 

What is it specifically that makes time so elastic? If you are doing something that is relaxing and distracting from your normal daily fare, time sometimes expands exponentially in your favor. 

Whereas, conversely, you may find yourself in a quagmire of short time constraints that are entirely limited by an insane deadline.

When we are sensitive to the construct of time, we find ourselves inextricably caught up within its rhythms. The sun rises and sets, the moon  waxes and wanes, the seasons revolve through their cycles, and collectively we are marking our own respective experiences in relationship to these natural metronomes. (Unless, of course, we rise off of planet Earth and become subject to the space/time continuum.)

How is it that time is such a valuable, if not, perhaps when paired with our health, the most valuable, of all of the assets we might have in life? 

Given that we are finite beings, we are ultimately forced to recognize and value time as our collective currency, upon which each of us must draw. 

In order to experience learning or participate in anything terrestrial, it is only through our own perceptions of this experience that we are not only aware of this variable, but also respectful of how and why it is so imperative that we come to terms with the realization that, regardless of any other limitation that could come our way, time is the inescapable constant that binds all of us into a collective global experience. 

You must find numerous important ways to spend your time, because it is truly the most relevant currency with which you are transacting in life.

Given that truth, make certain that the choices you make for your expenditures of time, are ones that are truly the most valuable to you.

Happy Thursday!

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!
