How could I do that better?
Not just how could I do that, but how could I do that better?
When I started making videos, I became more attune to how other people made videos. I started to notice more of the techniques filmmakers and even tv producers used to keep the audience engaged.
Then I tried to copy them.
The things other people can do become the standard for you to follow. If you’re able to keep the standard, then that’s great, but it can only get you so far.
Take a look at how other people are doing things, try it for yourself, but don’t stop there. Build on it.
Ask yourself, how can I do this better?
And you know what, sooner or later, you start to see your own work as the standard. And this sets you on a perpetual improvement machine.
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.
