I'd suggest learning CW at a speed high enough that you can't discern the individual dots and dashes.

Also, try just listening to code transmissions without trying to write it down. For the typical fast QSO, I just jot down the important stuff - name, QTH, report, etc. The main thing is to focus on the sounds - at first the characters, then simple words, then phrases, etc.

Easier said than done, I know!
