Wouldn’t it be nice if one could do something every once in awhile and still be successful at it? To dabble in something, yet be massively proficient at it? In my life experience I have found this never to be the case. The things that have mattered the most to me have required perpetual attention, dedication beyond measure and a willingness to come back to each experience fresh with the desire to improve.

I wouldn’t even pretend that it is always fun, in many cases, it is boring, repetitive, inconvenient and even sometimes annoying.

So what?

If a person is not willing to accept mediocrity in their life, not willing to settle for second-best, then the only option at one’s disposal is to implement self discipline at every level.

The single biggest impedance for a successful implementation of such a regimen, is of course oneself. We are the very best at finding reasons, excuses, explanations, alternative options and anything else that will ensure that we are not living up to the standard that we set for ourselves.

I have found the best recipe in my world for this erosive behavior is my continuous desire to improve upon the person I was yesterday. Surprisingly, this one tenent has anchored everything else into subordination and that seems to have made the difference.

Wishing you an exciting weekend full of joy and great happiness?

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!
