Focus is extremely important. Staying with the task at hand is difficult for humans. The average person
has an attention span of approximately 2-3 seconds, so developing focus is a key feature for all

state, and is often referred to as “being in the zone”, and once there the archer can achieve great things,
but like all things in archery, it takes practice and determination, and even then rarely stays around for
