I'm really trying to push myself to poach more and more lately. So here's something I found somewhere on-line and I try to keep it in mind when poaching.
If you poach more, or even try to poach more, you will occasionally be "punished" and look a little foolish. Even if you're a great poacher, you can still miss and risk looking slightly ridiculous. But that's OK, because for every time you miss the poach and "give away" one point, you will probably win five other points.
So that's why I keep on poaching. The good news is the looking foolish, ridiculous and/or silly part comes pretty naturally!
