Favorite Quotes From Jonathan Ross

The most common mistake people make is to go too fast or too slow. It’s similar to riding a bicycle. Although it is easy to get anxious about making a mistake, it is not difficult to learn from it as long as you don’t get too caught up in your own thoughts.

The rope must be longer to create more force. You want the move to travel all the way down to the anchor point. Jonathan Ross said another mistake is to pull the ropes too tightly.
