I often get the urge to give myself a “clean slate” in yoyoing, when I start from scratch and start working on a completely different set of tricks. This is essentially to bring my material to the next level and put to rest older combos (although I certainly reuse elements a lot, and remember my tricks so I have stuff to do consistently if I’m standing around or trying to impress people). This has happened for me after both contests I’ve attended, each time realizing that I need to “step my game up” and bring myself to the next level.
Does anyone else experience this? Perhaps this is a good strategy for continuing to progress. What are your strategies for progression?
