When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.

There is only one pass through this life you are in. 

One opportunity to give it everything you have.

One opportunity to prove to yourself and to anyone you care to prove anything to….

that you are what you think you are.

Today is one of those steps on that pathway.

One more incremental segment of your opportunity to make it so.

Because in the end, you will have your chance to reflect and truly understand how valuable… 

Each and every day was.

Did you make it count?

Did you pursue your passions with a vengeance?

Did you go for it with all of the skills, talent, intensity, dedication, persistence and tenacity that your inner being could possibly summon?

That day eventually comes for all of us.

Today is one more chance in your course of action to make it right.

To make it so.

To make it real. Vibrant. Intense and Important.

What are you waiting for?

The time is right now.

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!
