What to do when you don’t know something

As a teacher, I learned quickly that when you don’t know something, it’s best to say you don’t know, rather than trying to fake your way to an answer. Students are curious beings, well at least they should be, and they will always question the things they want to learn. If they find out that you covered the truth somehow, you lose respect, which is already hard to earn as a teacher.

You can tell them you don’t know, or you can tell them that you need to revise. At least guarantee them an answer of sorts.

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.
