Sequential movement

When you're having trouble getting your fingers in the right places at the right time, the problem has sometimes begun a few notes beforehand. Pay full attention to your playing of the notes leading up to the problem area to see if you're starting to fall off the wagon before you get to the treacherous turns. 

Clearing up easy problems first puts you in a better position to take on the more difficult ones. The slightest mishandling of notes leading into a difficult passage means your technique is out of balance right when it most needs to be in the flow. That disequilibrium in your physical technique will amplify the difficulties of the problem passage.
