A tip I learnt from the Motoring XX tv show on TSN (many years ago) is not to 'mash' through your gears as quickly as you can. Apparently, over time, this could lead to premature wear on your gear synchros. For example, when shifting from 3rd to 4th, you should pause momentarily in the center position allowing the synchros to sync up before poping it into 4th. Yes, this will definitely slow down your gear change, but for normal commuting, this is a good habit to pick up.
