What we pay attention to, and how often we pay attention to it has a huge impact on learning.
First, pay attention, then rehearse.
As Julio Olalla a leading coach says:
Practice makes perfect so be careful what you practice
Work your memory regularly and talk about what you learn with others – ‘Rehearsal’ helps learning stick by coding and recoding working and long term memory.
