Share your performance

I get the feeling that only so few people have realised it, but we are living in a golden age of self-publishing. Even 10 years ago it was expensive to buy a camera and produce good quality content, although owning a blog was probably easy enough, but could you imagine producing a podcast back then? Maybe.

I think it’s because of the sort of environment we’ve grown up with, where being on TV was only for the famous people. But now we have YouTube, I’m surprised how excited people get when they see other people on screen, perhaps that excitement of seeing someone on the screen just hasn’t gone away.

But my point is, we have so much potential now that technology has advanced to the stage where we have a supercomputer in our pockets, but I still think we could do a better job at expressing ourselves.

I learned in the past few days that if you want to get good at something, do it for an audience. You start to think about how more proficient people would critique you, and in turn you start to judge your own performance more objectively.

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.
