Many of my coaching clients have been focused on a similar issue over the past few weeks.
And because it keeps popping up everywhere, I’ve taken it as a sign that we need to do a deep dive into the topic for today’s podcast.
Because the truth is, I have a feeling lots of us are dealing with some version of the same issue.
And that issue is the struggle with follow-through.
But before we explore the challenges with follow-through, let’s first take a minute to talk about what the word follow-through even means.
What is Follow-through, anyway?
What is follow-through? What do I mean what I say follow-through?
Well, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, follow-through means “to press on in an activity or process especially to a conclusion.”
So in other words, follow-through is an action (or a set of actions) that you do in order to reach a conclusion, an end result, or a goal that you set for yourself.
Now, we follow-through with things all the time in our daily life.
We follow-through when we cook meals from start to finish. We follow-through when we get ready in the morning. Perhaps you follow-through on an evening routine each night.
In other words, we have a lot of behaviors that are ingrained habits, which, because we practice them so frequently, are easy to follow-through.
The obstacle comes when we want to follow through on a task or a goal that is especially challenging, unfamiliar, or new.
So, when we set a big goal for ourselves – whether that’s completing a project by a certain deadline, building your side hustle in the wee hours of the morning, losing a certain amount of weight, cooking meals at home every night, whatever it is that we find challenging – it’s in those moments that follow-through becomes more of a burden.
That’s when we start to struggle.
And the interesting thing is that oftentimes these are goals that we really want for ourselves.
We want to build that side hustle. We want to lose the weight. And we want to use our calendar regularly. But for whatever reason, we struggle to follow-through.
We struggle to maintain consistency.
We struggle to uncover the motivation we need to stick with it no matter what.
But why is that?
Why do we struggle to follow-through on the things that matter most to us? Why do we “drop the ball” on those big goals that we want to pursue?
Well, my friend, that is exactly what we explore in this week’s podcast. So be sure to check it out now!
