General / Re: How to get motivation up?
« on: September 05, 2008, 01:47:53 PM »
there are days I cant be bothered Diaboloing, so I dont.

I have a group of 5 mates who're all into diabolo, and although i'm the only one can do two, I feel finding motivation to diabolo quite easy, as although we dont compete, we do aim to better ourselves and each other, so one learns a trick, we all do....

problem being, that i dont know anyone who can do two, and although the likes of diabology are good to show you things, they not as good as someone watching you and saying "try this instead", so motivation to improve on 2 is only when i've no more 1d tricks to attempt

i find motivation is a hit or miss said above, diabolo is a fun hobby... if you dont feel like diaboloing, dont...whats the point in doing something fun, at a time you wont enjoy it

You have to replace 'viewtopic.php?t=' with 'index.php?topic=' (both times without the quotes ofc), then it works.

Cheers man

wasnt glaringly obvious, so i'm happy :D

Any more info you want on two High, probably the Two High Thread a good place to start

I'm probably missing the glaringly obvious here, but that link doesn't seem to work

is there a more recent two high thread? or another link?

Will post some video's to get advice from you all shortly, as from what i've read already you guys seem in the know, and from seeing sean i know theres some serious skills on here...
