To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.


How often do you find yourself changing?

If someone is changing regularly, do you view that as a sign of weakness? Or is it potentially more weak to remain resolute in the face of an obvious need for change? 

Many people are quick to take the former position. 

In watching a candidate or a leader continue to remain malleable in their position, and as a direct consequence be judged as irresolute and potentially spineless, I cannot help but think that those who are judging the candidate are ignorant to this simple truth. 

The world is in a constant change of catharsis. 

With every waking second, trillions of cells in your body are modifying and decillions of cells in the living things around you are changing right before your very eyes. The fact that we do not see this massive wave of energy and dynamics, does not negate the fact that it is continually present. 

Why then, would we expect any one particular decision to remain a constant in the face of a dynamic environment? Do we criticize a coach of a sporting team for changing the plays when he sees how the opposition is playing? To the contrary, we reward the coach for being a student, in their ability to watch the other players and deliver updated, revised game plans predicated upon their observations of what is happening currently. 

So why then, would we criticize a politician, or other leader, such as the CEO of a company or organization for doing same? 

If they are continually observing the dynamic landscape in which they are operating, would we not be wiser to applaud them, for their continual ability to recognize the proverbial writing on the wall, and as a direct consequence, modify their intentions, to better apply to the circumstances readily available at the moment? 

Our lives will always be dynamic. Circumstances will always change, and perfection is never truly reached. It is always just a destination to be heading towards. In our willingness to hem in our ability to navigate our pathway through these perceptions, comes some of our greatest potential triumphs… in that our awakened inner sense is working to guide us and deliver more appropriate responses, predicated upon everything that we have digested prior to the response. 

Happy Wednesday!

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!
