English: Make notes.

An important part of developing a growth mindset is being reflective, and in order to reflective, you need to make notes so that as a learning experiment proceeds, you'll be able to look back and see what worked and what didn't work. In order to focus on the process rather than the product, you need to make notes! Then, you can look back later and reflect effectively.

For more about the power of writing, see this great blog post at Lifehacker: How Writing Makes People Smarter by David K. William
Here are the topics covered in that article:
1. Writing helps us untangle the messiness in our minds and allows for clearer thinking.
2. Writing helps us absorb information better and learn significantly more.
3. Writing helps us process negative feelings and improves our emotional intelligence.
