When I am traveling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I cannot sleep; it is on such occasions that ideas flow best and most abundantly.

Taking a walk might be one of the most therapeutic and galvanizing opportunities in life. So many of the great minds reference it in their statements…

Today’s quote is one from Mozart. Steve Jobs would always take a walk with somebody rather than sit down and take a meeting. Beethoven and Newton both used to go for long walks to sort out their minds and da Vinci would disappear into the wide open areas of Tuscany trying to his inspiration.

There is something that happens about a half mile into the walk… your body forgets the exercise and gets lost in thought. How one channels that experience can be catalytic to creativity and advanced thinking.

Given that so many forms of our diversion have been minimized during the pandemic, going deeper into the creative chambers of one’s brain might be one of the greatest escapes of all.

So the next time somebody tells you to “go take a hike,” thank them and take their advice😊

Wishing you a very ✨creative✨

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!
