1: Try tightening your clutch cable a little.
2: Change the oil, Dexron 3, Penrite Xtra light gear oil or my preference Castrol Transmax Z
3: Syncros may be shot

as he said adjust your clutch cable, if your clutch pedal has gone very hard and seems to have lost some travel as well, then check your firewall...

Thats more of a reason to adjust your cable.
