On This MLK Holiday…

May we remember the man whose sacrifice paved the way for our evolving equality and justice system in this country. You may say it’s imperfect or needs to improve. But I say, we are not where we were yesterday.

Martin Luther King Jr. maybe one of the ultimate hustlers of his time. His goal wasn’t for money or building an empire of his own. But to help steer the wrongs society had written. To help guide the generations after his away from hate and towards love. To create better days than the ones before.

However you spend today, please take a moment to remember this man. This courage, his passion and his sacrifice. And may it be the fuel for your aspirations and dreams.

What Are You Building?

Or more like, are the efforts I putting out today building the goals and dreams I envision in my head? And much of the time, my answer is I dont know. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t have a plan in place of where I’d like to get to. It just means I am not always sure that everything I am doing is will factor in to the overall plan.

But… my actions are still fruitful and produce many positive and learning opportunities. Otherwise, I would need to either revisit the plan or start over. And starting over is too hard. Not impossible, just hard. And time consuming. And resource draining.

Every so often I am to remind myself that my actions will contribute to the means for a prosperous end and dont need to know the how every thing will fall into place. I just need to keep working on the dream and trust that it will fall into place.

Don’t stop building.
