The Sum of All Parts

One thing that Moneyball teaches us is that when it comes to achievements, we should see people as the sum of all parts. We have to look at people not for the mistakes they make, but for the positivity they bring; their overall contributions, not their black marks. And also, not doing so will be to our detriment.

Of course if someone does something unforgivable, then you shouldn’t forgive them. However, we have to take the mistakes into consideration and never write people off. Take a long-term look at achievements, in other words.

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.
