You have to do it every day

That’s the thing. You have to commit to do at least something towards your goal everyday. This is by far the best chance you have at guaranteeing its success.

I spent the better part of the last three or so months trying to memorise a 7-page (small pages, but still) prayer. Well, I actually started actively trying to remember it 10 months ago, but three months ago I vowed to memorise a little bit more each day.

I can gladly say that I have now memorised it. It may not be as smooth as I like, yet, but at least it’s there in my memory. And I believe I only got there by promising myself to do a little bit each day.

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.
