Who is the project designed to serve?

Hindsight is a bitch. Especially when you were wrong.

A decision was made, which (most likely) ended up being for the best of the project. Only, the decision was made against your wishes.

You helped the long term survival of the mission, but at the same time led to your demise.

Which begs the question. Who is the project for? You could argue both sides, but ultimately, remember that the project is for who it is designed to serve. Not you.

When the project is for you, that’s a lifestyle business. In that case, make sure you’re the one benefiting.

Otherwise, celebrate because now you have another chance to start a new project. Just remember, who are you serving, and what’s the change you want to make?

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.
