Disappointed? Or on the search for better? Seeking perfection in creative projects
There comes a time in creative projects where you realise you should have done something different. But should you be disappointed, or grateful that you’ve found somewhere you can improve? That’s the thing I love about creative projects. There is no perfect, and this means there is always something new you can try out, something new for you to improve.
For example, I’ve been putting together a video for my solo hike on Mt. Taizo (which was amazing by the way, as you’ll see when the video comes out). But only now do I realise that I should have filmed things other than me walking through the forest, however beautiful it is. It was also pointed out to me that I should vary the camera height to get different perspectives in, one that is sorely missing in the Mt. Taizo footage is a low-angle shot of my feet.
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.
