Another January is here! For me, that is a time to reflect and decide what the next year going to bring. Shooting! My love of shooting has only grown over the years – not ready to hang up the spurs yet!
In years past, my goals have been everything from, “Beat Grandpa on one stage ” to, “Be a National Champion in everything!” While yes, I would absolutely love to win every single match in 2024 (here is looking at you Space City) I also want to spend some time working on things that I haven’t worked on before.
I am very blessed and while I have gotten to go to matches all over the world in many different shooting diciplines, this year I want to take some time to go to matches I have never been and try things I have never done – while winning it all! Just kidding. 🙂
I also want to do a little more research and learning. I have gotten to be involved in several shooting sports, some of them for 25+ years! It is time to find something new to play with and learn about.
For 2024, I am going to set three goals:
1) Attend a minimum of 2 ICORE Matches
2) Use my timer – especially in dry fire – once per week
3) Re-read one of my favorite shooting books – With Winning in Mind
It is never too late to set goals for 2024. Here are a few resources if you are looking for some inspiration to get you started.
With Winning In Mind – Best book I have ever read for shooting.
Year Compass – I came across this link a couple of years ago and have been using it ever since. If you feel like you need a guide to help you look back, evaluate and move forward this is a great tool.
24 for 2024 – I love this author, Gretchen Rubin, and she has some cool resources if you are looking to set goals and achieve them. Here is a post about some of the ways she starts her year that I found interesting and inspiring.
