It’s no secret that the defining moment for the New Year is the grand statement of a resolution. Whether it’s to start something, stop something, do more of something or do less of another, we all mark the beginning of a new calendar year as the starting point for change.
All too often, however, the resolution’s polish wears off. The good intent remains, but somehow what we’ve resolved to do disappears into the background. Life gets in the way, the goal becomes unrealistic, the right conditions never seem to materialize or the desired kick-start never starts kicking. Things get difficult, and we start looking for another reset point. And when we find it, we wait.
The reality is that no reset is needed, no conditions need to be met, and life doesn’t get in the way of your resolution. It’s all in the choices you make and whether they are consistent with the path you’ve resolved to travel.
This is obvious to those with a tactical mindset. “Tactical” means taking specific actions, carefully planned, to reach a specific end. The end game is your resolution, and the tactics are the choices you make to get there. Are all your choices consistent to achieve the goal you want? What is your end goal? To be a better shooter, or to defend yourself and the ones you love?
In this and every issue of Tactical World, it’s our mission to help you make those decisions. Whether pointing out new training methods or introducing you to manufacturers who make you better at what you do, we want to provide you with the necessary tools and information to help you make the right choices while traveling on your path.
