Surprise and Sacrifice

For most shooters, there is no rhyme or rhythm in their results when shooting a shotgun at a moving target – painted or feathered. If you shoot a shotgun enough, when you’re surprised by a target at the range or bird in the field, you look at the target, mount the gun, and pull the trigger. Then the target blows up or the bird folds without you thinking about what or how you did what you just did. This just adds to the confusion.

You would give anything to be able to consistently replicate that shot on demand over and over again, but we all know what happens on the next shots. It ain’t pretty. Your results are less than desirable, and people are watching! After another 25-30 shots you just can’t dig the hole deep enough to hide from your results.

Two phrases come to mind: “I can teach it to you, but I can’t learn it for you” and “Don’t be upset with the results you didn’t get from the work you didn’t do!”

So, you find yourself at a crossroads: between what you want, and doing something about it by making a goal to improve. And having the discipline to actually act on achieving your goal, because discipline will take you to places where motivation cannot. If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, then what you want will become the sacrifice
