Why is it so hard to shift quickly?

Ok so I may be a dummy and doing this all wrong, but you know what really grinds my gears? It's the constant grinding of my gears!

I find whenever I shift under normal operation (meaning I take it slow and very deliberate), my car shifts fine. But, the second I try to shift as quick as I can (including when I quick-shift), there seems to be a 30-40% chance that I'm going to miss a gear or get some gear grinding. When I switched from the factory shifter to the steeda shifter, things improved but it still leaves a LOT to be desired.

Is there a good fix for this, or am I just doing things wrong???
