For the team

If you’re going to do something, do it properly. I’ve already said this about my experience with N1 on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, but it’s equally true when you’re working in a team.

When you’re working in a team, your success is the team’s success, but equally the team’s failure is your failure. You have to do everything you can to see the team succeed, even if that means not taking credit, pulling the weight of others, or taking one for the team.

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.
