Learning to Practice Practice

by Cole Gabriel-Rebmann

Woah this is cool. 

I've never thought about writing a blog post, I normally suck at writing, and I never thought I had a lot to say about something. Until now.

This collection is a debut from a year long hibernation Tashokuno took. I graduated from college a year ago, released Course Management, did some pop-ups, met amazing people and then kind of hit a wall. I lost confidence in myself and the brand and in my future. 

Behind this brand is a 23 year-old Asian American freelance graphic designer with imposter syndrome, a loving family, supportive friends, and a fiery passion for golf. Although throughout this year of not being socially present in the cyber world, I met some amazing people, learned so much from my mentors, and practiced practice.

What does Practice Practice mean? 

Practice Practice is my way of saying "just do it". It's my reminder to be open minded and accepting of failures because that's what this is, what golf is and what life is. Learning how to fail is one way of seeing it, but it can also be learning how to learn. "To be a learner, you've got to be willing to be a fool." is a quote by George Leonard. This two word, same word phrase is my reminder that you're going to look dumb before you look smart. Just like how when we look back at old videos of our swing, we nearly throw up. But hey, look at us now, look how far we've come. 

Thanks for reading this lil note on this collection. I hope it means as much to you as it means to me, keep going, being a fool looks good on you.
