Sustainable Social Responsibility Seriously
“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.“
– Theodore Roosevelt
We have so many options, so many voices in our heads, and so many notifications from our apps in 2021 that it’s easy for something to slip away unless we do things to center our focus properly. When the ‘something’ is our purpose then we must keep focus.
The photo of myself here is on Easter Sunday 2021. he image below was our original Green Miyagi logo through 2020.
Then Easter Sunday 2021 Arrived
Ashes to Ashes: A New Beginning
This is my new look after Easter Day 2021, and the tattoo now on my face is the new Green Miyagi Brand logo: the Earth Teardrop. This is my way to keep the focus on what I believe my life purpose to be. It is also to display the commitment to & the spiritual permanence Green Miyagi now has in our universe.
After the turmoil of 2017-2020 continually bringing Green Miyagi down I found myself in a precarious position in the last month or so. I could choose between conforming to the heavy systematic pressure our society and the people close to me are demanding so I fall in line to a ‘normal’ life as one ‘ought’ to as they truly seem to believe. I cannot be so naive. My second option was to continue to sacrifice a stable and comfortable life by remaining steadfast to the vision I know to be required of me by God, my Ego, the Universe, or whatever power higher than ourselves that you choose to believe. To me, it just is what ‘it’ is. It is real to me and it is the light by which I can see a better world ahead for others through being better myself. I’m fully accountable for that which I choose to put into the world, and at this point in time at this Denison, Texas place I find myself with odds stacked against me that can easily overwhelm or chop me down. I am grateful to have the opportunity to find out what I am truly about inside and out again as the chaos of our life these days sets the dramatic backdrop.
“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.” -Henry Wadsworth LongfellowTweet
Each time we begin to ascend we must surpass that which we have already achieved. We must continually level up. The next level for me personally is clear to see and is based on logic and reasoning mixed with the random element of chance or fate. Movement requires a catalyst. In Applied Behavior Analysis we will say to evoke behavior requires a Motivation Operation (MO), specifically an Establishing Operation (EO). Action demands drive and motivation. Pressure, time, and heat form diamonds from coal.
When striving to make a business succeed under any circumstance for entrepreneurs is already unlikely. By now (4th year) roughly 70% have failed according to an article by Entreprenuer.com. This statistic considers all businesses and most businesses have a focus on making a profit. Green Miyagi Waterless Mobile Auto Detailing & Car Wash Service was created as a tool focused to promote Sustainable Social Responsibility Business and our purpose: North Texas Water Conservation Mission in Denton, Texas. Profit is by no means our focus, and the service we deliver was constructed around the simple basis of creating an already common service that can demonstrate a significant impact for North Texas water projections by its business practices. Denton, Texas is home to the world’s first Environmental Philosophy program at the University of North Texas where sustainable business is readily accepted and the culture has to a large degree internalized behaving in more environmentally friendly ways than the rest of Texas. Now in Denison, Texas Green Miyagi faces a greater task in shaping a culture still rooted in for-profit business with a scarcity of green entities and ideals en masse.
The Road Less Taken
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.“
I decided Robert Frost be wise enough, and I choose his less traveled road to shine this light upon that I have been blessed with. I would rather be imprisoned, tortured, or eternally burn in hell before I do anything other than an act to fully manifest the Green Miyagi vision I hold in my heart into the world. This new Earth Teardrop brand logo as it is now tattooed for all to see (most importantly myself in the mirror) on my face is the mechanism by which I double-down on my creation. It’s the proverbial ‘back against the wall’ with the added element of me forcing myself against the wall by eliminating any other possibility of thought to occur in my mind or for me to allow into my perspective of the world. I’m all in, and this again I do for Generation Z, our sons and daughters, with love unconditionally.
Sustainable Social Responsibility Business purposed with a North Texas Water Conservation Mission is all we are, and all we desire to be.
Who else is with me? Logos Gravis…
