atop a rock cliff. My husband, viewing the switch-back trail
we'd just climbed, happened to see a grizzly bear cross behind...

I've watched a few episodes of Nanny 911 and with the chaos, out of control children and seemingly irreparable behavior, it strikes me as a precursor to Workplace 911. No, not a new reality TV show, but everyday workplace problems. You see, kids...
| Revision Techniques
The mind has a tendency to constantly reject all that it
considers not important. By revising again and again a message
is sent to subconscious mind that it is important. In most cases
over 80% of our learned information is lost in just 48 hours! If
we do not revise our mind does not consider it to be important
and discards the information. Fast Revision Technique is a very
powerful Revision Technique to remember and recall. Its steps
are as follows: - (a) Step-1: Take time between lectures/self
study periods to go through what you have just learnt. It can be
as early as 1 to 2 hours. This is very crucial to rein-force the
learning. (b) Step-2: Set aside at least one hour every day from
the start of the year. You must revise as and when new concepts
are taught/ learned during the day. (c) Step-3: Give special
treatment to your revision on Sundays. On each Sunday, you shall
revise every thing that you have learned in the week, though
very briefly. You may also write down few lessons/solve problems
from memory with out looking at your notes just to test your
memory and understanding. Just skim over your notes very briskly
and make sure you plan gaps between two different subjects.
(d) Step-4: On last Sunday of the month allocate three extra
hours for the monthly revision. After you have revised what you
have finished in the week, go through all that you have learnt
in the entire month. This revision will be easy and fast as it
is the fourth revision of the month (e) Step-5:
learn something new, always take time to refer to what was
previously taught/ learned by you. By this you check how well
have you grasped the matter? By frequent revision we are sending
a message to mind that this information is important and are
continuously training the mind to remember the things that you
revise. (f) Step-6: Modify the plan so that it best suits you
but basic strategy of setting aside time everyday should not be
compromised. Celebrate success each time and do remember to
punish yourself if you are not able to stick to your plan. For
example, if you tell yourself "I will start by revising first
four chapters." And there after I will have a soda ice cream you
will be amazed at how fast you finish revising four chapters.
