Some misses are frustrating. You can feel that next height coming. You can _taste_ it. But all the ducks aren't quite in a row, yet. Maybe you got off the ground with that next big stick, but you didn't manage to link up the swing yet.
Well, sometimes you have to take things one stage at a time. First you get off the ground. Then you get upside down. Then you try to pull everything together and make a bar.
Whenever I move up to an unfamiliar pole, I try to do that on my first attempt, so that I can get comfortable with the first two attempts before I have to make the third one count.
