Hanging out at my local barbershop, I decided to pick up this book. It’s amazing to learn Eiji Tsuburaya’s journey to be a special effects producer. If you think about it, it’s not like that vocation/job title existed until Godzilla became a reality on the movie screen.

One of my fraternity brothers, JP Listana, pointed out something really interesting. He told me, “Pre-Internet days I feel like despite the lack of technology, people back then were more creative and smart about utilizing what they have and there’s more of a drive. Now a days technology is so prevalent and embedded in our lives and society, it’s so easy for people to say, ‘oh I’ve seen that before’ not only once but 3-4 times because of the abundance of resources. Users feel drowned and confused.”

Think about it. It’s unbelievable the world we live in right now. We have all the tools available to us. It’s just a matter of making the wisest combinations to get things done. And when I say wise, I mean aligning together intention and technique. Anyone can do anything. Personally, I love creating systems and putting information in the right hands at the right time. I might not have experience in a specific industry but I learn quick and apply my experience in managing information. That’s where I can help people.

I like to think each person has a special skillset. Someone might be really, really good at drawing but not know how to sell/market his/her work. Someone might be really good at making connections with people but are terrible at drawing. Why not work together to build a product or a service?

Growing up in “be your own hustler” NorCal, trust is challenging to build. However, as I continue to take care of my roots being planted in Hawaii, I realized that there is a level of organic growth to create trust. On another level, respect is also something that has to be grown organically. At the end of the day anything is possible but it’s based on relationships and being part of a team that has synergy.

Have ideas that seem far fetched? What’s stopping you from manifesting those ideas? How will the world benefit from those ideas? Let’s talk story, holler @ me.
