Simple tweaks for huge leverage

Years ago I started jumping rope as part of a training regimen and was terrible at it.  The only consistent thing I did was whack the tops of my feet with the rope every other jump.  I almost gave up and assumed it wasn’t meant for me, until someone gave me this tweak: move your hands one inch forward.  Literally in minutes I went from zero to advanced.

Jumping rope isn’t an essential life skill.  But given that experience I now ponder how many important things we’ve all given up on that – with one small tweak – we may discover we’re good at.
