Creativity and Productivity

Creativity for the sake of creativity is most welcome. Productivity for the sake of productivity is not. Why? The more creative you are, the more benefit you provide to the human race. The more productive you are, doesn’t necessarily result in more benefit for the human race. It can, but not always. When it does, you should probably do it.

What about creativity for the sake of productivity? Well, it’s a similar story for productivity for the sake of productivity.

Productivity for the sake of creativity? Does that exist?

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.
