Tip 1: Think broadly. 

  • What questions bubble up?  
  • What hunches do I have?
  • What might I predict?

Tip 2: Think closely.

  • What inferences am I making? 
  • Does this fit with what I know?   
  • How does this compare with other sources? 
  • What am I missing?
  • What don't I understand? 

Tip: 3: Think strategically.

  • What should I follow up?
  • Who else can help?
  • What's my plan?
  • What's a "to do" for tomorrow?
