Before arriving at crag:

Read Rock Warrior's Way.

At crag:

Look for rests.

Look for clipping holds (or gear if trad).

Determine the most difficult parts of the route. These are the parts through which you will need to climb the quickest.

Locate parts that may be intimidating, and determine the safety of them. It may need to be refined on lead, but once you determine it's safe, you need to focus on the movement, not on perceived danger. If it's not safe, then skip it (or retreat).

Do your best to come up with sequences for as much of the route as you can, recognizing that they may need to be refined on lead.

Go over your list of excuses (or set some up!) that you'll have if you fail. Laugh

That's all I can think of for now.
