Stories v. Anecdotes

Stolen directly from Seth Godin’s most recent podcast, cohesion and commerce.

I’ve been writing a hell of a lot of anecdotes on this blog, this might even be one of them, but I need to focus more on the story. Anecdotes are only really interesting to the writer, but can be ok if they connect to the story, the story that resonates.

That’s the key. Finding the story that resonates, and telling it. That’s what I have to focus on.

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.

Tim.
