Breaking the essential rule
Essentialism is doing only the essential. No until it is a definite yes. But what do you do if you’ve broken that rule? Say what was a definite yes, has now become a maybe? That’s the situation I find myself in, and I’m afraid I may have to break someone’s heart.
As rich dad says, however, if you’re earning extra money, it’s fine if you’re putting it to use to make extra money (at least I think I read that before). Then I can invest that money to buy me more free time in the future to work on the essential. So I could think about it in that way I guess. It was a definite yes in the past, so maybe I can give it a try for a while and see how we go. By then I’d know if I was right or not.
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.
