157: How To Keep Expectations From Crashing Your Match with Josh Tarrant

Friend of the show, Josh Tarrant, is back on the podcast this week to discuss performance vs expectation of performance. This is one of the aspects of “the mental game” and definitely among our favorite topics on the podcast because we invest a lot of time, money and effort into 3-Gun and we’d like to see it pay off in a great match performance. Balancing the desire to do well with your actual match performance is something that the top shooters in the sport have locked down or are constantly managing as they make their way through a match. People like Josh are figuring it out along the way and applying their experience from other high-level sports, bringing in new ideas and new perspectives to the game we love to play. Find out how Josh is learning to deal with expectations on this episode of The 3-Gun Show.

  • How managing your mental performance determines the outcome of your match
