In sports following-through is the range of motion from the beginning of a movement all the way to the complete end of the action.
Any slight change or tweak during the motion can disproportionately affect how on target an athlete is.
In an article for GolfDigest.com Tiger Woods briefly explains the follow-through in his swing:
“I like to think that my follow-through determines how high the ball is going to launch. In reality, my follow-through is a result of my angle of attack.”
We get excited about ideas, plans and the initial concepts we draft. But only having the right ‘angle of attack’ in planning our follow-through will determine how far those plans will come to be when all the excitement passes.
Zig Ziglar sums this up nicely:
“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar
