Efficient bridge thinking tricks, and how to learn them

Hi there. Early on, an expert friend taught me the simplest way to count trumps. Another friend taught me how to think in terms of hand patterns. One expert I know, when given a hand, simulates the play under his breath starting with his instinctive line, and quickly recognises the heart of the hand.

All of these efficient-thinking tricks pay out massively in a long event, when concentration is valuable. Where can I find a list of these shortcuts?

If such a list doesn't exist, I would love to compile a concise summary of these techniques to teach improving tournament players, and also to learn what I don't know.

What is the best technique you know to simplify bridge thinking? Thank you.
