We had the good fortune of connecting with Randall Barnes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Randall, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
I have daily, weekly and monthly habits that I incorporate in my life as a successful professional. 1. Create a schedule: Be sure to have an order to your life. It is a godly trait to find order even if it looks disorderly to others, things geniuses do will never make sense to everyone.

2. Make plans then refine the edges: Start with a rigid plan that carves out all your ideals and make room to throw out things that don’t make sense in real world application.

3. Be open to conversation you never know what you will learn: NEVER, EVER stop learning! Learning is mandatory in all successful people. The beginning of wisdom is understanding and so you should approach life in the same posture to understand.

4. Take a day to stop, restructure and adapt: When life is overwhelming. Stop. Sit. take a moment to let your body catch up. Then formulate a new plan to accomplish your task. This is, sometimes for me, a nap, a weekday off or a day off each week or even exercise. But you must take a reset day.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It is extremely difficult. Your approach can’t be to avoid difficultly otherwise you would miss out on the opportunity to germinate. I have spent and expanse of time overcoming myself, he is usually the thing in the way. When I am not battling me, I am facing a system that always needs debunking. I have learned that you put forth the work way before you see the result. I have learned that things could go according to your plan but, do not set your heart on it because your disappointment could be more devastating than your desire. I have learned that each season is different and requires different things from you so do not approach them the same. I have learned that going where you must will be leaving behind what you must. I have learned that to become stronger in anything you must go workout; the gym is rarely physical.

I want the world to know that I am more than my accomplishments. I want the world to know that I will never stop. I want the world to know that they will never figure me out. I want the world to know I am successful right where I am and will be successful wherever I go. This all speaks to my brand which will be conveyed as pukka.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well, I am a top to bottom person. I would take them to the best places that Oklahoma City has this includes your Vast, Mahogany or Red Steak Prime but I would also take them on a cultural tour of East Oklahoma City to Ice Event Center, Culture Coffee and Leo’s BBQ for them to engage in cuisine. Then more than likely, Tulsa for them to visit Greenwood Cultural Center, The Gathering place and back to Oklahoma City Thunder game. I like for people to see the best and I believe the best is a variety of prices but, one great experience

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Jesus and the inspiration of literature that embodies him. Zarah Barnes, My wife, lover, encourager and best friend. My Father for his wisdom, my mother for her love, my brother for his support, my sister for her prayers and my other sister for her hustle. I am appreciative to my friends for their consistency, logic, understanding and more than I could thank them for. My pastors for their lives and them being worth emulation.
