What's Your Mark.
A marksman knows exactly where her mark is.
She knows when she has hit it, and when she has not.
She will exert significant effort and a substantial amount of time to mastering her skills, cultivating the correct temperament and poise so that she can willfully hit her mark. She learns how to handle external distractions and how to work with her own internal thoughts and emotions. She knows how to adapt when the conditions change, how to stand in varied terrain.
When she hits her mark, she is not lost in emotion and feelings of achievement. Her's is the quest for mastery, for knowing directly and having the confidence that comes with that knowing. The mark simply allows her to get there.
