Distraction and the resistance
Anything that takes you away from the creative work you feel like you should be doing is a distraction. This is the resistance at work. Sometimes even productive things can feel like you are doing something productive, but they’re really not.
That’s why routine works well: ie doing something creative everyday. If that becomes a habit, it can be harder for the resistance to take hold.
Seth Godin says there’s no such thing as writer’s block. I think therefore I am. If you can think, you can write. It may not be good writing, but it’s writing at least. Make a daily habit of it, and that bad writing will one day turn good.
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.
