Commitment to Your Plan
You must become totally committed to how and where the shot you’re about to take will come together – both in practice, and on game day.
But you’ve got to be committed to doing it like you planned, as opposed to committed to saying you’re going to do it one way, and then throwing the plan out the window and trying to get the lead right and break the target at the end.
You must train an immediate post-shot routine to instantly replay what just occurred. If it was successful, it can be repeated, and if not, it can be corrected. But you are prohibited to pull the trigger if the speed is not matched.
Here before you have been creating hits, and have been fascinated in the breaking of the targets. Now the quality of your misses must ascend to higher and higher levels. And this begins in practice. Even if you miss, your misses have to become much higher quality. Even if you miss, you better damn well match the speed. If you’ve matched the speed and you miss, you’ve got a one-shot correction.
The problem is in your approach to practice.
You have not been nearly as deliberate or specific with your plan on exactly how you’re going to commit to the next shot, how you want it to come together and where you want it to come together.
That’s the long and the short of the difference in the way your practice has been. Your practice has been three, four times a week, maybe a flat each time. But there’s a difference in shooting a flat and going out and shooting 150 targets committed to the shot or the detailed preload.
