Do it differently, do it well

Do it differently, do it well. This is the key to success in any endeavour.

To be able to beat the best, to be able to be the best, you need to do things differently than the rest. Experimentation is key, but also backing yourself and having the confidence to get through the tough challenges this brings up.

Doing things differently alone is not enough, however. To be the best at it, you have to do it well. This too requires experiment, but here experience is also key factor.

How do you experiment? How do you build experience? Put the hours in! This is the sure-fire way. Anything else relies too much on luck, which is unreliable at best.

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.
