Do something you like, or gtfo
I went past where my dad worked today. He passed away four years ago now, but it reminded me of a conversation I had one time when I took him there.
My dad did not like his job. He was just doing it for the paycheck. If you don’t know how long you’ll be on this planet, that’s a risky move. I’d rather prepare in advance and have the option of work than to be in a position where I have to do a job I don’t like.
That’s why I’m trying many different things, to broaden my options and build skills, and it’s why I think you should too.
If you don’t like what you’re doing, gtfo and find something you do. Find the funds to go on a world trip if you don’t know what you like. Just gtfo of that shitty situation.
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.
