Is there anything more important than follow-through?

“Is this the ‘no follow-through’ speech again, Dad?”
“Yes.”
“Okay.”
“You know what your problem is, son?”
“No follow-through?”
“No follow-through!”

I have no idea why that scene from a corny movie (If Looks Could Kill, 1991) stands out in my mind all these years later, but it does. (If you’re into corny, mistaken identity, spy comedies from the 90s, you might enjoy it. There’s a Lotus Esprit, Nissan 300ZX, and Saab 900 in it!)

In any case, follow-through has been on my mind lately. I’ll be the first to admit, I tend to run with exciting new ideas—no matter the cost to following-through on previous ones already in progress.

Should I really be rebooting GBXM—or doubling my efforts here?

Should I be thinking about sailboats—or investing in my Montero?

See what I mean?

It’s not necessarily that simple, but it’s on my mind lately.
