I started last season’s archery league with an average of 164 out of a possible 360. I set a goal to reach 200, which I hit in the middle of the season. For me, there is no looking back so I set my new goal at 230. With lots of practice and patience, this was reached by the last two weeks of last season’s archery league.
I started this season out strong!! I was nailing the yellow consistently. So, I set my new goal at 260. Then, everything fell apart. I would fix one issue and find another. I just couldn’t get right. My grouping was everywhere. It was very disappointing. I was averaging about a 235. This is still great compared to last season, but where is the progress? Especially after the fast progress I made last season.
It was just luck that I caught something in my peripheral vision during league this week. The problem was quickly fixed. Thanks to identifying this variant, I not only reached my goal, but I demolished it with a whopping 271. It was a good feeling and was worth the wait.
It’s time to set some new goals. There is a huge difference between going from 164 to 230 and going from 230 to 260. That shot group is getting tighter and tighter. That makes my next goal huge!!! I want that 300!! To be a 300 shooter in this league would really make all that practice and hard work shine. It’s a big goal and a long shot for a traditional shooter, but I am going to make it happen.
I am curious to know what personal goals you have set for yourself on your archery journey and what you are doing to achieve them. Let me know by commenting below. I would love to hear your story.
