When I was studying KungFu, my teacher repeatedly told us that we should always aim three inches behind the point of impact and hit through the object. That way, the energy can flow and maximum impact achieved. The same principal applies to life: to make an impact aim way past your actual target, just let it flow and swing all the way through. It’s called planning for success and only requires two things: commitment and relaxation. There’s no point stopping half way.
