Here's a common slide technique problem...reaching out towards 6th or 7th but never really reaching the position before you turn around and come back.
Sometimes I compare this to taking a trip in your car. I live in Columbia, South Carolina so, for us, Disney World is only about a 7 1/2 hour drive. We've taken the kids many times.
Imagine we're driving along in the car on that first magical trip to Disney and along about Jacksonville, I stop and announce, "OK, kids we're here!" Then I turn around and head home.
(nothing against Jacksonville, of course)
'Twould not be a happy time in that car.
So, whenever you turn around before truly experiencing the "Disney Magic" of 6th or 7th position, think of the kids.
Don't break their little hearts.
