Do you keep a training diary/journal/notebook?
I have found for me it has been an incredibly useful way to help keep my training focused.
I keep one where I make notes on techniques I am going to be working on or techniques I am learning and trying to remember.
I keep another training journal where I record my rolling, what I am currently working on, did I manage to hit those techniques in training and what felt good or if there are any issues I feel I need to address.
Finally I keep a drilling journal, what am I drilling at the moment, how much time or how many reps have I put into drilling these. This final one acts like a lifting journal where you record your workouts and weight used in that I use it to keep myself accountable and monitor if I am doing what I think needs to be done.
