:: a different version of you exists in the minds of everyone who knows you.

:: Last week I had the pleasure of working with @acuracanada and providing them with some insight of my personal take on Precision Crafted Performance.

I recall being asked a question, β€œHow
has your idea of success shifted from when you first started?” I hadn’t really taken the time to think about this, because when I started, becoming a DJ wasn’t something I wanted to become successful at, I just loved the art of DJing.

It wasn’t until the art of DJing evolved into an opportunity to travel, self-sustain and make an impact in various ways did I start to shift my idea of what success as a DJ really looked like for me. 
After working the nightclub scene for 15 years, my idea of success has changed drastically. I see that world through a whole different lens than I did 15 years ago. Different things matter to me now. 
I learned to say β€˜No” to overworking myself in the ever dispensable, constant under-cutting world of the β€œnightclub circuit” and learned to take time, reflect, find better opportunities and accelerate my career.

In that transition, I had to learn so much about me and became very unapologetic about creating the new vision for myself, which is what the amazing folks at Acura Canada mentioned that’s something that they are going through right now as a brand.

It obviously always hasn’t been easy. I’ve had to cut out a huge piece of my life and even distance myself from certain people and situations in order to make that transition into striving for another level of success in my life. Once you understand its about experiencing the ups and downs that constantly remind you about what your core values are, that’s what keeps you rooted in focusing on your idea of success.

:: I am so happy @beyonce Is speaking out about the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet and the positive effects it has on our environment.

I have been making a choice to eat plant based meals FIVE days out of the week for the past year and a half and have become a self proclaimed FLEXITARIAN lol. Ask @kardinalo @officialdready and @thisisjester, everytime were on the road I'm always on a different diet regimen. 😩
I just want to do my part to stay healthy and contribute positively to the world I live in simultaneously.
Here are a list of documentaries that I watched that brought me to this point:
. - @Cowspiracy
- #WhatTheHealthFilm
- @forksoverknives
- @fedupmovie
- @wthfilm (What The Health)
- Food, Inc
- Fat Sick & Nearly Dead
- GMO OMG
- @sustainable_filmmakers
- Vanishing of the Bees
.
Have you watched any of these? Has it made you think about the way you consume food?

:: sometimes we are always so busy thinking about the future, we don’t take enough pride in the tasks we are given right now.
▢️ how you do anything, is how you do everything. πŸ”‚ wherever we are, whatever we’re doing and wherever we are going, we owe it to ourselves, to our art, to the world to do it well.
