Mastery : Five Keys

 “There are some skills you can learn on your own, and some you can try to learn, but if you intend to take journey of mastery, the best thing you can do is to arrange for the first-rate instruction. The self-taught person is on chancy path. There are advantages: you enjoy the license of not knowing what can’t be done; you might wander into fertile territory previously ruled out by mainline explorers. Some of those who have taught themselves- Edison for one, Buckminster Fuller for another-have made it work. Most, however, have spent their lives reinventing the wheel, then refusing to concede that it’s out of round…”

“Mastery”  by George Leonard



For some contributors at “TT” (Olympic pistol public forum).

“Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind, is it true, is it necessary, does it improve upon the silence?”  Shirdi Sai Baba

This is what my yoga instructor usually says

This is what my yoga instructor usually says:

“It all depends on what you brought to your training today.”

How to reach your goal in most effective way with less amount of time?

Some comments on “TT” are difficult to read because a thousands words could be said in a much fewer amount and with more clarity. Use your intuition to choose the right way to access the correct source of information. No one can do this step for you. If you choose to use your Olympic pistols for recreational target shooting, you can stay with  “Free” public forums or sources where you eventually will be forced to buy new equipment with more “promising” features.

If you will choose to compete, you will definitely need a coach or mentor. This is not question to pay or not to pay; this is the question how to reach your goal in most effective way with less amount of time.

I can recommend you to read these two books: “Mastery” by George Leonard and “Outliers: The Story of Success” by Malcolm Gladwell.

Measuring Your Return on Initial Investment.

Congratulation, you became a happy owner of a few nice Olympic style Pistols (Air pistol, Standard pistol and Free pistol). This is roughly about $7,000.00 in total. What is the next step? You start searching on the Internet to learn something about Olympic style target shooting (ISSF) or start gathering information from your buddies at your local shooting club. As time passes by, you did not make too much progress. It seems you learned a lot over the year or two, but progress in your score performance froze at a very low level. You may ask yourself, why? What is wrong with me or with my highly priced pistols?

Nothing is wrong with you or with your pistols. The cause of your stagnation is your initial approach to get what you want. If you initially made the decision to spend $7,000.00 for recreational activities and use the Internet and your local advisors from your club, there is nothing wrong with this approach, but in the bottom of your heart you believed that you can do much better than your friends. There is nothing wrong with your beliefs as well. The only problem is the decisions made on those values (current perception) that lead you toward your current performance.

If you are not happy with your current score, you have to change your way to practice and learn something new. Search the internet for successful achievements, follow by leaders and “copy and paste” their success.

If you learn over the years such terms as: “Bad Days”, “Chicken Finger”, “Snapping”, “Unantisipation of the Shot” and etc…, your values of current knowledge are probably very questionable and you are driving toward the wrong direction my friend. Time is for U-turn.
