Please use 15 minutes (or as much time as needed) for summing up what you worked with between the last session and this one:

•  Did you succeed in doing what you planned?
•  
What was easy to do and what was difficult?
•  
What did you learn from doing what you planned?
•  
What can you do better next time you work between sessions?

Please remember: It is okay if you experienced problems – this is a new way of working, and it takes some exercise and experimenting before it becomes routine.
