My new Mantra, to add to my ' Routine' Mantra, is 'Concentration - Commitment & Execution'.

You are right - both Simons
At the end of this morning, having completed all that I had set out to do, I decide to attempt the bell target at 55yds. I've never even thought about trying to do it before. That sort of thing is for good shots.
I had been shooting for about 3 hours, so I was well warmed up.

My first three shots rang the bell. I got caught out by wind which I didn't read properly on my next two shots.
But I did see where the pellets missed the target. [not far away]
The next two shots rang the bell again.

Without being specifically conscious of it at the time, it was a [relatively successful] exercise in concentration, commitment & execution.

I may even go back again tomorrow and shoot some plates.

For me, confidence is a defining factor too.
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
