Now don't get me wrong, I love the idea but also recognize that it is also a crazy idea!
so why then am I forging ahead with it?
Well to be honest I don't really know, but suspect it is something like this; it will most likely not really go anywhere and wont get off the ground in any real sense, but if by some minor miracle it does well then it just might become something worthwhile. I'd like to see that happen even if right now I have trepidation about the work I'll need to put into it.
In any even, yes I have made a website for it and so far the response to it has been very favourable which is a pleasant surprise for me.
So now that the site is live I am searching for and researching potential interview subjects. Once I have a few of those lined up and the first semi-prototype interview I'll even start pitching a few potential sponsors to at least help bear the brunt of the costs of running the site, hosting the chats and generally making the world a dartier place..
At the end of the day the worst thing that can happen is I get to be the victim of my own "I told you so" and as the old cliche goes, nothing ventured nothing gained.
Not much more to say about it right now, except that realistically I don't expect to have the first interview done before early spring (but you never know) and that I hope that even if only a few people like it or like the idea, that they like it a lot.
if you'd like to support me in this project I obviously am looking for interview subjects and sponsors, but if neither of those are in the cards for you simply clicking on the 'like' and 'share' buttons on the website are a huge help!
Dart Board Chats
OK so back to regular dart stuff...
I feel that I have a fairly strong foundation from using Flight School but despite George's best efforts I still have my own darting demons. I suppose a few of them, but the biggest one is falling into the trap of putting too much pressure on myself, which leads to a break down in performance which leads to me putting even more pressure on myself.
Maybe this is you?
Now I am sometimes a little leery of disseminating helpful or motivational slogans, regardless of how well intentioned, but this one has worked so well for me that I will share it with all of you.
"All I want is to throw a quality dart, one dart at a time, regardless of result".
That little bit of golden advice is from an old forum thread I found on the SEWA darts site. You can read the original thread: here
I just really like that, there is something elegant about it, and simple and unencumbering that I really appreciate. I am not sure it is the cure for all my stresses but yes I believe it is sound advice.
I'd love to get some feedback on other people working hard to learn this game (especially those who can be hard on themselves) and see how this little bit of darting wisdom works for everyone!
Just keep in mind that this is in addition to structured focused practice for which there is no substitute. This is just a little something to keep your head and heart in the right alignment with what you are doing!
I have only had one go at it, (the results were epic i their horribleness) but think this is an interesting/fun little program.
Along the same lines as the N01 and DartPro programs.

OK think that's all for now! Thank you all once again for reading!! See you all next time!
