Make deadlines for every task

Don’t let any task, no matter how small, have an undefined deadline. Undefined deadlines create undefined game plans. Encourage momentum by tagging everything with a due date. Play a little game, challenge yourself to answer all emails in less than 5 minutes. The next day try to do it in under 3.

The Aloha Spirit Law

Passed in 1986 by Hawai‘i lawmakers, the “Aloha Spirit” law is recognized as “the working philosophy of native Hawaiians . . . presented as a gift to the people of Hawai‘i.”

It was written by Aunty Pilahi Paki, after she foresaw a 21st century world filled with bitter conflict, a world that will look to Hawai‘i for healing.

Aloha would be its remedy.

According to the law, all Hawai‘i citizens and government officials must conduct themselves with aloha.
