Intent to Remember
How many times have you gone to class or read an assignment
with something else on your mind?
When you employ the principle of intent to remember,
you use concentration techniques that help you pay attention. You have
the attitude that you will learn this now,not
wait until later.
Here are some tips that might help:
Pretend that there will be a quiz when you finish. The
reward will be $10 for every answer you get correct.
Use a concentration check sheet. When you feel yourself
wandering from the subject, put a check on this sheet. Do this every time
you find yourself not concentrating. You will program your mind to pay
Use a rubber band on your wrist and do the same as above!
When reading an assignment talk back to the writer.
