Hit Publish and mean it

When you do calligraphy, there is no such thing as a second take. If you write the character but forget a spot, that’s it. No adjustments.

When you make a website, everything is changeable. If you want to change the photos or the copy on the website, it’s usually not that hard to do. Everything is a work in progress. Everything gets better over time with subtle and sometimes huge adjustments.

Physical books and YouTube videos are different though. Once something is out in the world, it’s out in the world. Everything is a work in progress until you hit that publish button. No adjustments, only amendments and additions.

This blog isn’t published because it’s ready. It’s published because it’s today. Sure, since it’s electronic I could go back and change things, and with things like typos I sometimes do, but then you lose the advantage of it being today. Much like that first calligraphy character, no second takes, no adjustments, no amendments, no additions.

Hit publish and mean it.

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.
