Love this. Let me spin you some tales.

I am a heavy gamer, and my ex girlfriend couldn't cope with it. Even worse, she was a horrible loser, and a horrible winner. Beat her in a game? Should of gone easier on her, huge strop, literally childish response. Let her win? She brags and boasts and says how she can always do it. I mean, **** , we once played chess and I actually struggled to lose convincingly. Then, after a grueling amount of time losing, she had the nerve to brag. I cannot stress how terrible she was at this. This went for any game though, be it video or not, and losing was a way to incur her wrath. When she once asked me why I didn't go easy on her, I gave her the honest truth; I'm good at games, and if you're not challenged, you won't improve. She didn't like this concept. (In slightly related news, I recently learnt she's decided to study for a doctorate. Take note of everything I just said and appreciate why I laughed so hard at this idea. She barely made it through one year of Uni).

I can never recall where I picked this line up, but I always say, "Learn to fight with two swords." The idea being, it's more difficult to fight with two swords than one, so you become better than you could ever be training with just one sword, and faster. Take this with a pinch of salt, obviously, because they're two different fighting styles, but you get the idea.

People do better when they're FORCED to do better.

As a music major, we have a similar motto. "If you can do it at 160 bpm, you can do it at 120. If you can do it ten times in a row without mistakes, you can do it once."

I do pullups and run with a weighted vest so it is easier for me to do them without. Same concept with what you have here

I could not tolerate a girlfriend who would not at least be a competent opponent in chess.

Was about to point out how different the style of fighting with one weapon is to fighting with two, but then saw the "pinch of salt" and instead typed this.
