Observe

Observing the behavior you’ve noticed can help you pick up on patterns. Pay close attention while it’s happening and jot down what you see. Try to do this for two weeks.

How to observe

  1. Focus on the behavior you’ve named, but be aware of anything else going on.

  2. Take notes about what happens, when it happens, and where it happens.

  3. Only take notes about what you see and hear. Don’t try to guess why it’s happening. You don’t need to make sense of it yet — just to keep track of it.

Practice: Observe

Think of what you observed the last time the behavior happened. Look at your notes too. Fill in the sentences below with the details.
