Reference Cards:  When you figure out something new or interesting for your camera, write it down on a little 2"x3" piece of card stock and then throw it in your camera bag.  For example after shooting something like the Northern Lights, a rising moon, a particular portrait session or attend a seminar, write down all your camera settings or particulars so when in a similar situation many months or years later, you can quickly see what you did and be ready to start the new shoot with a better chance of success.  Even things like how to access certain settings, etc on your camera can be a useful reminder.  If you didn't note your settings at the time of the shoot, you can always look them up in post in your metadata.and then write up your reference card.
