How to be successful at Calculus  How to be unsuccessful at Calculus 

Have a growth mindset: believe that through effort you can improve your mathematical skills.  Have a fixed mindset: believe that your mathematical skills are set, so effort is either unneccessary or futile. 
Show up and do the work.  Skip stuff. Start with an occasional class, then a recitation, then some online homework, ... 
Figure out the solutions to activities and exercises.  Find the solutions to activities and exercises by copying from classmates, looking at posted answers, searching the internet, etc. 
Work the online homework problems out on paper (and save this work) before entering them.  Do the online homework by patternmatching with a similar problem or using another website to figure out the answer. 
Be active in class: think, write, talk, do, ...  Be passive (or distracted) in class, waiting for learning to somehow happen. 
Read the book. Carefully. Multiple times.  Don't read the book. Make excuses like "It is too confusing.", "I learn better from videos.", or "The instructor should tell me everything I need to know in class." 
Do the exercises in the text.  Ignore the exercises in the text. Convince yourself that since it is not collected it must not be important. 
Strive for mastery. Mastery is when you can solve the problem confidently by yourself.  Settle for familiarity rather than mastery. Familiarity is when you recognize a problem and can follow along when someone else, a video, or the book solves it. 
Sparingly use videos like Just Math Tutorials or Khan Academy. When you do, pay attention and work along with the video.  Use videos a lot and as a replacement for reading. Let them play in the background while you do something else. 
Make sure all members of your group (including yourself) understand the recitation groupwork before submitting it.  Do the recitation groupwork by splitting up the problems and working on them separately. That way you only have to learn a fourth of it. 
Use learning resources:

Invent and use false rules like

When you are struggling, get help.  When you are struggling, hide.
