Constantly putting your best foot forward

In world cups where it’s do or die, it’s hard to pick the right team for each game. If you pick your best players, some of them may be too fatigued or god forbid injured to be able to play in the next game. But then you risk losing the current game to even have a chance at getting that next game.

In many ways it’s a battle of attrition. You have to have good enough players on the field, so you either need enough good enough players, or you need your good players to be good enough for longer.

This is similar to creative endeavours as well. If you don’t put out something good enough, you risk losing at least part of your audience.

Essentially this means you constantly have to be putting your best foot forward. You constantly have to be trying your best, not only to defeat your opponents or to get the upper hand on Pressfield’s resistance, but so you can do enough for your own satisfaction to keep on keeping on.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
