Welcome to Week #3 of the semester!
- Off to a good start with taking notes in class? Awesome!
- Block out 15 minutes the day after you have class to review those notes. If it’s a really hard class or you take sloppy notes, take a few extra minutes and actually rewrite your notes.
- Benefits of encoding through multiple channels

Ok, fess up, did you do your homework last week?
This week is all about sustainability. How are we going to set ourselves up for success? Pick one thing Zack and I talked about this week (developing a system, journaling, meditation, etc) that would help you in reaching your goal, and block out space in your calendar this week to do that one thing, or at least get started doing it.
