Nine Steps to Remember What You Learn

The three most important times for learning are: Before, During, and (soon) After.

Before
1. Bring your “A game.” Choose to be positive and interested. Being bored is a choice— a self-defeating choice.
2. Check your foundation. Come prepared.
3. Expect to remember.

During
4. Pay Attention. Ask questions.
5. Take good notes.
6. THINK!

(soon) After

7. Avoid mental interference. Use quiet, uninterrupted reflection during rehearsal.
8. Apply what you just learned
9. Self- test. Really test, don't just "look over." Repeat several times in the next hours and days.
