Depth of impact

If I think about my current positions, teaching, and guiding people on the mountains, then obviously you want to make a deep impact on people.

I feel teaching is about preparing people for their future. This means I tend to focus on mindset, creative thinking, and critical analysis rather than arguably more practical language skills. I think the skills to get through the world are more important than language skills per se, so I tend to talk a lot about what I think are important skills to have: grit, acceptance, and a positive mindset come to mind first.

Mountain guiding, well, Yamabushi training, is all about acceptance, and letting people know that nature will always be there to teach you a lesson, you just have to let it.

Both of these roles I think give people a deep impact, so my next task is to spread that to more people. This blog is one way to do so, but I’m going to need to be more creative in future to spread the word more.

But, I think depth of impact always comes first. With depth of impact, it spreads itself (or it should). So the challenge is to maintain that while it spreads. Which you can control by constantly spreading the message.
