Writing up your intuition
If you have something to work with, it makes it 1,000x easier to edit, iterate, and improve on what you’ve got. That’s just another reason why I like to put my immediate thoughts together whenever I’m handed an assignment or something where I have to use my creative abilities. This for me means that I can still rely on instinct; jumping into things without giving too much analytical thought, then mulling it over before really getting into the nitty gritty of it and editing, iterating, and improving.
It’s true that everything starts with a simple idea, but a simple idea with a little bit of back work, or as I like to call it writing up your intuition, can go a long way.
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.
