Fall in love with the product of the learning
We may not like the act of learning. Sometimes it can feel like a chore to conjugate verbs and learn new vocabulary to a decent level. The same can be said for learning a new skill that takes dexterity and practice.
At that sort of time, focus on the product of the learning, the ability to do something. Push yourself for at least 10 minutes daily, either mentally or physically, and while you’re doing so, focus on what it will feel like to be able to do the skill in question, the product, so to speak.
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.
