Navigating troubled waters will either cleanse you, or drown you. The choice is yours.

The navigation through difficult times is perhaps one of the greatest challenges that any human being might face. In these moments, one is presented with a core reality that is inescapable. At that moment one must decide how one will navigate their way through the crisis.

The Covid epidemic is the largest it has been to date. In California they’re shutting all the restaurants down again as of Wednesday. The devastation this is causing to countless businesses is inestimable. The lives that are getting ruined are beyond measure.

In a crisis, we all have opportunity to try our very best to navigate a path for us and our friends and loved ones to safety. Sometimes this path is very clear and other times it requires every ounce of concentration to remain on the path, at all costs.

Remembering the grace to share with others who are having greater difficulty with the navigation is one of our most precious resources. Compassion and empathy go along way in times of crisis.

I hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and that you are taking the warnings associated with this virus seriously. I have known too many people whose lives have been disrupted or ended as a result of not paying attention to what is really going on right now.

Together we will defeat this and we will emerge on the other side stronger and perhaps much wiser. I hope your Monday brings you great joy!!🌟

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!
