Look for the common denominator

Sometimes for your own sake you have to work with people who have a different point of view to you. At that time, it helps to find somewhere where you all have a shared point of view, a shared vision. This shared vision becomes your common denominator. In fact, looking for a common denominator is probably the only way forward in a large number of cases. It helps to put away your preconceptions so that you can focus on the task at hand, not the person. Otherwise, you get stuck in a back and forth and no progress is made.

This idea I stole from the Tim Ferriss podcast with Charles Koch, and I want to share it so that I can come back to it when I need a reminder.

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.
