6MT Shifting from 1st to 2nd Under Pressure - Hitting the "notch"!

I'm not used the 6MT in my 328i Sport. When i'm accelerating in SPORT mode and shifting from 1st to 2nd under load, i'm hitting that damned R notch! It's so annoying! Any tips or am I just going to have to practice, practice, practice? My '02 Jeep Wrangler's 5MT was a lot easier to shift under pressure, as was my '03 Jetta! I remembering hearing in reviews that "if you like the BMW 6MT drive train, you'll like this one, but if not, you'll hate it". First bimmer so I guess i'm a little in shock that I keep hitting that damned notch!
