Drowning in deadlines

The only way to truly know if you want to do something or not is to do it. Without actual experience, any opinion on the matter is moot.

Right now I’m drowning in deadlines, there’s so many things I have to do over the next few days. Deadlines are good because they keep you on task, but when they all come at once it can be pretty overwhelming to say they least!

Either way, you can think of all these deadlines as an exercise in priorities, a way to really consider what you really want to do. Only having done things can you truly know if it’s worthwhile doing them in the future.

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.
