Quote: Shortcuts And Learning

These days people want to improve overnight, so when they hear they have to dedicate a year before achieving results, they get scared.
Little do they know: if they practice without technique, they will get further and further away from achieving good results. By the time they reach old age, they have failed to learn anything.
If you use proper technique to practice, you can actually count the days that it takes to improve. After a year you will have reached a high level of shooting.
How is this not a shortcut?
