Focus on process, not on outcome.

If you focus on what score you need to get, that's a quick route to failure

Focus on hitting targets and the outcome will take care of itself, focus on spreadsheets and you'll see your scores plummet.

( Don't say I didn't warn you when you finally realise this )

Says the bloke who'd worked out his lead 5 minutes after he'd pressed Robot Shaun's Button 😀

Well, the last GP is just around the corner, good luck to all the Bandits because you're going to need it, the course looks pretty tough to me and on ground I've never shot! Mind you they often look longer when you're not on the bag, cracking course though, proper thinker. Final positions and targets go out Saturday so it could all change knowing our Jud.

PS: The Mozzies are out at Anston, they are well vicious and hard as nails, they're cock of the woods, make sure you've got some spray to lather on.

See you Sunday Bandits.

Well done to Josh and Daz for lifting the titles, excellent shooting boys, just working a report now while fuming that I missed out again by less than one target, you wouldn't believe how ****** off I am at the moment

Some great shooting in the lower grades this year and some excellent battles, thanks for all the support on the thread and with the PoP reports. I'll be back later when I've had a walk and finished this article for AirGun World.

Yours in Misery
Morrissey

Thumbs up

i think it will aspire us all. i know your struggling a bit at the moment mate and its frustrating when you know you should be doing better but you've got to find away to take the pressure and self expectation off. I make a point now of trying not to look at my own score card and not keeping a mental note of what score i have either. Its a bit of a problem when people asked how many your down but hey ho nobody is that bothered about my score yet anyway

i really do now take a "its me V the course" approach to my shooting now and give every target the respect as if it the world championship depended on it. Ok so im still missing stacks but do genuinely feel that ive give it my best each and every shot. What i do find strange is that ive developed this delusional self belief that i am actually going to hit every target i point at and am absolutely amazed when i hear a "dink". I amazed myself 15 times yesterday LOL

so many times i used to pull the trigger hoping instead of expecting to hit the target, now unless im certain its going to fall i dont pull the trigger, sounds crazy doesnt it when im still missing so many but ive shifted my mind set to a ultra positive one and its slowly working for me.

Im really looking forward to next years series, learned so much and met so many great people this year. It would be brilliant to see us all banter our way up to "A"

Good Luck, relax and try to enjoy the experience of Portugal mate

There's no pressure really, chat about stats and numbers is just good fun for me, it isn't what drives me, I just like that side of stuff and it's never been a replacement for practice, more entertainment and I think it has some value, when I get more time I'm going to build a Robot Martin. I just had the face on this morning

Jack Harris missed only 23 targets in total for the whole GP Series (350) and was shooting off 98.2%. I missed 23 on Sunday alone but you know what? I'll be back every Sunday

I'll be blogging and doing videos for the Worlds as it will be quicker if I can find good WiFi

Yea mate but Jack is already a robot! I was watching him Yesterday it's just bizarre how he does it.

I will be an avid reader of your blog mate from my sunbed in Ayia Napa. iPad in one hand and a beer in the other
