Modern Hunting Rifle "Heym Keilerbüchse"

I came across the Rifleman’s Creed the other day and was struck by its simplicity and truth.

It simply says,

My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke that we make.

We know that it is the hits that count!

This is a terrific reminder that in a world that often values busyness and activity, it’s our ability to focus our efforts on a few critical actions that create outstanding results that matter.

So stop trying to make a lot of noise.

Stop trying to impress others with a lot of pointless activities.

Stop complaining about how busy you are.

And do what matters!

Practice your craft relentlessly.

Aim truly.

And pull the trigger.

Because it’s the hits that count.
