Reducing Pre-Exam Stress and Anxiety
In his classic 1953 work Zen in the Art of Archery, philosophy professor Eugen Herrigel applied the wisdom of the East to the simple act of shooting a bow and arrow. Herrigel, who lived in Japan for six years, exhaustively practiced both archery and flower-arranging using non-Western techniques and condensed those lessons into a short book. The singular theme that emerges from Zen in the Art of Archery is that great archers fundamentally aim at themselves rather than the targetthat is, they focus more on their own execution of the task than a positive end result, which should flow naturally from a flawless performance. If people concentrate too much on the objective and not enough on the steps required to reach it, then theyll fall short every time.
