We think we need more gear, more stuff and more gadgets. There is nothing wrong with stuff, but it is no substitute for good practices and training.

I knew some great carpenters who built the most amazing homes with a small tool collection. They knew how to use those tools well.

1. Define the goal.

2. Is the training I’m doing taking me closer or farther from that goal?

3. Spend more time training and less time shopping for stuff.

4. Choose a defined standard such as a target and work with it until you have consistency. The printer paper and post it notes are standards.

5. After accuracy is obtained, you can add variable such as movement, multiple shots, time standards, etc. I suggest you add one at a time.
