Don’t dawdle

Don’t dawdle. Of all the things to remember from inside a friend’s house as I grew up, for some reason this cross-stitched sign in my friend’s toilet sticks out. There was something else to the sign, but the key message was to get on with it.

And that’s the sort of push that we need a lot of the time. If you’re going to do something, once you’ve decided to do it, do it. You could even do it before you decide to do it. Whatever you do, don’t dawdle.

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.
