Me: I don't want to be just the cool video guy. I'm trying to build something special with people that care about the same things as me. I wanna do TV, I wanna do music, I wanna help the community, I want to make movies!

Roman: Well what are you doing to make that happen?

Me: Nothing

Our future ambitions can often cloud our current judgment. We all perceive ourselves in a certain way and what our future will be like. But it is easy to overlook the steps that need to be taken to achieve those goals thinking that we have plenty of time to get there. What happens when you run out of time, or circumstances change in your life that make it harder? 

I remember as a child, taking a road trip with my grandfather from Pomona, CA to Shreveport Louisiana. We were going to meet up with some of my cousins and check on our old property. I had always wanted to go and was so excited to meet up with my cousins. I knew the drive would take 24 hours before we left, but during the trip it seemed like it took forever. I would text my cousins who were sending me pictures of all of the games they were playing and I couldn't wait to get there. As the hours passed, I began to get irritated sitting in the same car for hours and wanted to be there already. I wanted so desperately to RUSH THE PROCESS even though I knew it would take 24 hours. As I began to become more irritated, the trip seemed to get even longer. I lost patience and I lost my perception of time. Most importantly, I let that effect what could have been a cherishing memory that my grandpa and I could have shared.
