Gathering Data

If you’ve ever seen my Instagram stories, you would know that I love my coffee. I try to get a variety of coffee to try so I can know what I like and dislike, and I have discovered a few really good ones that I like (Mocha Gesha from Ethiopia and Andes Mountain from Ecuador, namely).

The thing is, to know the good ones, you need to know the bad ones. It is precisely because we have a lot of data points that we know what the good ones are. If you aren’t constantly trying new things, you lack data, and could be missing out on the good ones.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
