That's really great. I'll paste a few of the notes here:
1. Do one thing at a time. Single-task, donâ€™t multi-task. When youâ€™re pouring water, just pour water. When youâ€™re eating, just eat. When youâ€™re bathing, just bathe. Donâ€™t try to knock off a few tasks while eating or bathing or driving. Zen proverb: â€œWhen walking, walk. When eating, eat.â€
2. Do it slowly and deliberately. You can do one task at a time, but also rush that task. Instead, take your time, and move slowly. Make your actions deliberate, not rushed and random. It takes practice, but it helps you focus on the task.
3. Do less. If you do less, you can do those things more slowly, more completely and with more concentration. If you fill your day with tasks, you will be rushing from one thing to the next without stopping to think about what you do. But youâ€™re busy and you canâ€™t possibly do less, right? You can. Iâ€™ve done it, and so have many busy people. Itâ€™s a matter of figuring out whatâ€™s important, and letting go of whatâ€™s not. Read more: The Lazy Manifesto: Do Less.
4. Put space between things. Related to the â€œDo lessâ€ rule, but itâ€™s a way of managing your schedule so that you always have time to complete each task. Donâ€™t schedule things close together â€” instead, leave room between things on your schedule. That gives you a more relaxed schedule, and leaves space in case one task takes longer than you planned.
5. Spend at least 5 minutes each day doing nothing. Just sit in silence. Become aware of your thoughts. Focus on your breathing. Notice the world around you. Become comfortable with the silence and stillness. Itâ€™ll do you a world of good â€” and just takes 5 minutes!
