There's a great danger in getting too comfortable with a technique. You could stop looking at what is actually done and at the same moment you stop learning. My sensei often solve this by doing the technique in perhaps 2-4 different ways. After he's done demostrating he says something like 'Iriminage, 3 different variations' and then we're supposed to do them all. Common reaction: "Three different!?!".
