Synchronous and asynchronous

Moving to an increasingly online world means moving to an increasingly asynchronous world. Technology is enabling us to work at times that are comfortable for us, meaning both night owls and early birds should be happy. Meetings spent updating people on news are no longer necessary, send an email instead. In other words, time spent on tasks that are available asynchronously is better spent on tasks that aren’t.

This also means that prioritizing time to do synchronous things, such as brain-storming in a group, or proper customer service, is more and more important. We have to be able to switch on and be present at these times too, which for people who can’t meet in real life is not always easy.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
