Managing with Ka la hiki ola


Ka la hiki ola translates into the dawning of a new day. With every sunrise we get another shot at doing it right. Live better and start a new chapter going forward. This is it. This day is your day. You get to decide the tone you’ll set for each day.

Ka la hiki ola shakes us out of our reserved life when we get stuck in our everyday routines. It reminds you that you cannot be complacent. You must be aware of the sounds of the new morning coming in, allowing you to open your mind and anticipate what lies ahead.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever business you are in, go forward and start today. It is the dawning of a new day. It’s your day. Make it the best one ever.
