Deep Work Challenge: The Week Is Young

For this week, let’s choose one activity a day we will concentrate on deeply. It can be a pretty mundane thing. Eating, brushing teeth, making your bed in the morning, preparing a morning cup of coffee, or an afternoon cup of tea, toweling yourself after a shower.

Pick one such mundane activity every day this week and when you do it, give it your complete, undivided attention. Be so into it as if a solution of a grand mystery of life lay at the end of it. Go as deep as you can into every motion, every sensation.

You’ve got to brush your teeth and make the bed anyway, so why not practice deep concentration while you are at it.
