Loyal disloyalty

Work is a balance between you and your company. Companies need us, and we need them. When you provide more value than you’re paid, it’s good for the company, but you may be losing out. When you provide less value than you’re paid, don’t be surprised if you lose your job. This fine balance changes day to day, and we have to be ready when the balance goes too far out of whack.

Companies don’t owe you a thing. In the same vain, you don’t owe companies a thing.

Which is why I don’t understand how people can be so loyal. Often they are putting all their faith in one place, when that place is legally allowed to change their mind. That’s why I try to spread my interests, and why I try to become a linchpin in everything I do.

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.
