A chance to improve

It’s unfair to judge work that’s half done. I consider some of my posts and videos to be half done, as in, I’m still in the process of learning what it takes to make good content.

So I can see why it’s easy to get offended if your work isn’t well received, especially when you’ve put so much effort into it. But all that this means is that it’s a work in progress, that you still have work to do. And that’s a good thing.

If you still have work to do, then there’s still a chance for you to improve. Then it’s more about perfecting the art than getting the work done. But you’ll be less afraid to ship if you have had any success, however small (sometimes just shipping the work is success enough, especially at the beginning stages).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
