Continuation plays an important role in our development. It is the ability to start something and stay with it until it is finished. In sports, there is a motion initiated, whether it is a swing a golf club, a baseball bat, the stroke in basketball or a strike in soccer, follow through is essential. Follow through is a crucial obligation to excellent performance.
Dr. Larry Van Such, DC, BE in his book Baseball Swing Mechanics lists five categories of a successful swing. They are, The Stance, The Loading Phase, The Timing Mechanism, The Launching Phase and The Follow Through. “The follow through takes us from the contact point the ball to the natural ending of the swing.”
The initiation of a motion or a project is apparent in many areas of life. Your commitment to start anything of value must have a follow through element attached to it. Your success in the art of the follow through will have an enormous impact on your relationships, results and reputation.
