>From a deck deal 10 cards face down. Each time you flip one, do the exercise, then flip the next on top, do both, then next all three until all 10 are flipped. Then the chosen one has to recall (with Pax assistance) all ten in reverse order and execute each one as a group. If there are any mistakes, finish with 20 burpees.
First round, one rep of each to learn.
Second round, 5 reps of each
Third round, 7 reps of each and sprint across the field before flipping each card.

Remembering doesn’t work like we want. We like the computer kind of memory where we just put it in, then we can get it back exactly the same whenever we like. But we remember some things and forget others. Why? Are there different ways to remember? How do I remember what is important?
Because we aren’t computers, we have developed methods of remembering. Though the words ritual, liturgy, and tradition aren’t much in vogue, they are a powerful means to remember well. A ritual provides repetition, ingraining that which you repeat. Liturgy acts out a story, activating many senses in an experience that sticks better than a fact. Tradition filters the multiplicity of that which might be remembered and holds dearly to that which ought to be remembered.
These things are on my mind as we approach Holy Week, in which Christians use these tools to relive and reinforce what we believe is the fundamental truth of the universe. But the approach applies across the spectrum of life, and you should use them to prioritize the things that fill your mind.
