Blind Archer

Background noise of a classroom and school bell ringing

Teacher: Welcome to archery class! For this lesson you will need your bow, some arrows, and a blindfold. First set up the target 50 feet away. Next pick up your bow and arrow. Then have your partner apply the blindfold and spin you around. Finally, shoot the arrow directly into the bull’s eye. Any questions?


Student: Um, mam, how do you expect us to hit a target that we can’t see?

You might think that archery teacher was very unwise. But perhaps you are shooting for a target you can’t see. If you have never clearly identified your goals and committed them to writing, then you too are shooting for a target you have never seen and your likelihood of achieving your goal is about as good as that of a blindfolded archer. Prayerfully, committing your time to specific written goals is one way to stay

on target and to redeem the time.
