1. This exercise should be practice over a week. When you first get up in the morning, read just the targets for that day. Don't read any targets before the day. Memorize the days targets.
2. You then want to notice the next occurrence of each event, where you then perform a simple test: Ask yourself the question, "Am I dreaming?" You want to notice the target just once-the first time it happens.
3. At the end of each day, write down how many of the targets you noticed. If you realize during the day that you missed the first chance to notice a target, then you've failed to hit that target, even if you might notice its occurrence later in the day. If you're sure you didn't see one or more of the targets at all during the day, make a note of that.
4. If after a week, you're still missing a lot of the targets, keep doing this until you can get most of them. Create your own list of targets, keep track of your success rate, and notice how your memory develops.
