A Tip For Today
The only way to get better at Olympic lifting is practice.  Thousands of reps help perfect technique.  Learning to Olympic lift is the closest thing I can relate to learning how to hit a golf ball.  You cannot over power the bar.  If your timing is slightly off, your bar path will be way off.  By slowing things down and purposely scheduling practice that does not put you under pressure to perform, you will slowing build your Olympic lifts.
