Like I said before, working on form never stops, it evolves. Brute strength will only take you so far.
I'm not in their league, but I will add that before every heavy squat, with the bar on my back, I am thinking about my ques. My wife will also say I constantly parrot "use good form, trust your form" before the big lifts.
