Life is a mountain. Your goal is to find your path, not to reach the top. 

Life is a mountain. Your goal is to find your path, not to reach the top. 


Have you found your path in life?

Are you working regularly to accelerate your efforts and propel yourself in the direction(s) of your choosing?

Is it possible that perhaps we are so goal oriented, we forget to take inventory of the amazing experiences, and the views that we have along the way? 

If we are myopic in our perspective in life, we are quite likely to overlook and pass by, so many opportunities and experiences that we might have enjoyed, had we not been so entirely single focused. 

Certainly, getting to the top of the mountain is where we all believe we are headed, and like any alternate compass, it provides us a true North, in which to plot our course of actions and our journey. 

But in the end, with as many of the multitudes of accomplishments any of us might potentially arrive at, they themselves, are not the ultimate destinations. 

To the contrary, they are actually steppingstones, each of which empowers us to leap onto the next lily pad with ever greater surety, accuracy, and determination. 

Finding your path in life could not be more important, but it is equally important to explore variations along the way, so that you do not potentially accidentally preclude something that could be even more amazing than that which you have set your sights upon. 

Happy Saturday!

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!
