Don’t be desperate
When I first started working as a full time translator, I made a point of answering my emails as soon as possible, so that I wouldn’t miss any chances. I guess I was desperate for the business. Now, I could do a much better job of answering my emails, but there’s a reason for that.
When you’re desperate for business, you start to focus too much on bringing in business, and less on actually doing a good job, but this is what will lead you to more business.
When you’re desperate, you think rashly and only short-term. Don’t. Focus on doing a good job. If you can do a good job at communicating as well, even better!
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.
