Five minute mitigation

It’s amazing how much further a little more preparation and planning goes. Sometimes even just five minutes of thinking in advance of what you want something to look like makes all the difference. Then all you’ve got to do is prepare for that, and for a little contingency, but also to forgive yourself when things go a little outside what you’ve planned. That first five minutes of thinking goes a long way in mitigating the big problems.

Of course this does have the disadvantage of going with the flow, and letting things take its course, but that’s what the contingency and forgiveness is for.

P.s. I’ve set up a media page with quick links to my most recent content, although I should probably add a start here part too… anyway 🙂

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.
