I work in Film. I live in Martial Arts. I thrive in Imagination.

WHY I LIKE THIS VIDEO: Kurosawa was a master filmmaker, relying on image to convey his emotions. How he captures emotions with this imagery is conceptually brilliant. I could watch this video a hundred times and always learn more.

Actiongram: Small Action, Big Results

Development Your Judgement. The ability to know the consequences of your action in a short-intermediate-long term time frame. Societies also call this "wisdom" which is usually the result of a long-life or an intense life. By intense life, one might be strong adversarial consequences (soldiering, danger, adventure, etc.,) where a lot of life experiences about humans and human behavior is gained in a short time.

Develop Judgement by becoming aware of other's judgement about situations, transactions and most importantly how people use their judgement to interact with you.

Think of it like a ocean wave, moving far out in the Pacific with almost an undetectable push...finally with the power and grace of an ocean wave onto the beach. Create your own metaphor to embrace small habits with a huge future impact.
