Keep Your Eye On The Target

Around here we believe in teaching them at a young age to focus. IMG_8246

First we give them all the proper lessons and tools they need to ensure that acquiring their target is done in the safest and most efficient way. And it’s never too early to learn about these tools, even when you're not quite ready to go after the target.

It is much easier to keep your eye on your target if you know what it is. We need to be specific with what we are aiming at, so we don’t miss. When we first learn to focus, our targets are clearly defined and often don’t move out of our sights.

Later our targets may not be as clearly defined and might move in and out of our range requiring our focus to be even more steadfast.

If it isn’t, we may find ourselves distracted. It is easy to forget the task at hand when we see something else that grabs our attention.

Something that has nothing to do with with our target, but may be just as interesting. It can be difficult to focus for many hours on just one thing.

And sometimes we realize that no matter how hard we try to attain our target, we just can’t seem to do it through traditional methods. We need help zeroing in and getting it within our sights.

Even if we look a little foolish doing it, we know that we will do whatever it takes to get the job done. Even if there is some snickering going on behind your back.

Because if we stay focused, don’t give up, and keep our eye on the target we will nail it. But it might just take several tries, so don’t give up!

How do you keep your eye on the target?

This is so true! Love the pics. :-) How do I stay focused? LOL I usually get reminded somehow. Like laundry. I start folding, get distracted, pass the couch and remember, oh, I'm supposed to be folding laundry! LOL

Love it. The analogy of staying focused on a target while shooting sure translates to real life.
