  1. Ken;
    Great idea for a web site! I am a man of you trait of thinking. Are you familiar with http://www.ted.com? If not, check it out. You will certainly find many wonderful speakers that will help you on your way to enrich your personality; although it looks as if yours is already well developed. Thanks for asking me to follow you on Twitter; I am in.

  2. I have to laugh here! I accidentally came across your Twitter profile by looking at someone elses friends list and your website name caught my eye. “Wasabi”burger caught me by surprise! LOL! Living in the south, my friends make fun of my email address named wasabiaugs…so, I decided to venture to your site. Japanese decendent? I’m sansei. Motivational guru are ya? Pretty cool. I’m new to this Twitter thing and I don’t have much use for it, but it’s fun just looking around other sites and hoping to get something positive as I am in the world of healthcare and I myself is constantly stressed working in a critical care unit as an RN. Oh, I go by Augs or Auggie btw, and nice to meet you. I’ll start following you on Twitter and I hope I get the knack of this thing!

  3. @Dariusz: Thanks for visiting! I’m definitely a TED lover and try to keep up with the latest videos. Unfortunately, I’ve been quite busy at the moment and haven’t had the time to watch, but thanks for the reminder.
    Please feel free to join in and comment on my posts too. (I had a chance to check out your work on your website. Great stuff!)

  4. @Aggy: Hi Aggy!
    I’m glad you came across my site. It must be tough working in a critical care unit as an RN. I’ll post some tips for you in the future for handling stress, so feel free to visit anytime. Thanks for visiting! (BTW, I’m Nisei Okinawan)

  5. Hey Ken:

    I just stumbled across you blog after you started following me on Twitter. Very cool idea. I’m a huge believer in kaizen (in fact it used to be my screen name a few years ago) and it has had great effects in my own life.

    Take Care,
    Clayton (aka “Kaizen”)

    1. @Clayton: Thanks for visiting! I’m glad that you’ve embraced the philosophy of ‘Kaizen.’ Let’s work on a Kaizen project when have a chance.

  7. Dear kurosawa Ken,

    I am commenting(at 2:14 am i might add) because I too am a night owl, we may be a different species, but no need for specifics. What I would like to add is that you and others should watch: What are dreams?Nova. This program is enlightening and has made me wonder if my life has been profoundly directed due to my non-rem and REM sleeping cycles. a short over view( my own interpretation) is that non-rem has been found to be when our brains rapidly process our daily events, it is not linear in nature. REM sleep is when our mind projects our being into the future and makes sense of random brain activity by using memory(often whats on our minds). REM sleep is for learning. Although REM is vital for humans to thrive it can be an issue because studies have shown that subjects waking from non-rem awake with a better attitude then subject awoken from REM. This is because REM can be challenging since our minds must work at understanding and adapting. Theories are that subjects waking from REM too often could suffer from lack of motivation or depression. To me this makes sense with the Night Owl syndrome I experience and you have documented of just not being motivated in the morning. My own theory is that I choose to go back to sleep(I wake often but quickly go to bed again many times a night) perhaps unconsciously hoping I will wake in a better mood/more refreshed etc. I would like to think that people such as myself are truly just trying to get what ever one else gets without trying. Better sleep.

    I would hope that this comment makes some sense to you. It is hard to fit so much fascinating info into a short space. I hope you see the program(available on Netflix) and spread the word!

    Night Owls – we dream of the day, a place where we can see our goals clearly.

    Lyndi K. D.
