Concentrate on What You Are Doing and Ignore the Target

Some thoughts on Japanese archery.

This makes some sense. There was a time when I was a pretty fair shot with a handgun. I was at the point where I knew where the shot was going when I fired without having to look at the target. I could feel when it was right and when it was not.

Repeatability is the mark of a proficient shooter. A great shot can be luck, repeated great shots are skill.

That's sort of like the magical way of typing faster. You learn to type faster not by trying to type faster, but by trying to type perfectly. The speed comes on its own.
