i was making a lot of mistakes and then my archery instructor said:
“you make mistakes because you’re focusing on the target and not on your actions”
and i was like woah
thanks for giving me the best life advice i’ve ever gotten
guys just think about how applicable this is to EVERYFUCKINGTHING
What’s amazing is that both this advice (focus on your immediate actions) and its exact opposite (focus on the big-picture target goal) are equally true and equally necessary to master any skill. Wisdom is being able to hold contradictory ideas in your mind at the same time.
