“A boring task can be exciting for me when I see it as training for my mind, to have patience and focus for the present. For example when I do my dishes, I appreciate the fact that I am cleaning after myself."
"It gives me the time to think about the products I was using to clean, how much waste there was and how I might want to change some of my habits to make lifestyle improvements but also what and how I'll be cooking my next meal.”
“Start with a SUPER small piece of the task. If I'm to do the dishes, step one can be like ‘lift left leg from sofa to floor'. After doing the 10 or so first TINY subtasks I start to feel a sense of accomplishment and hunger for more."
“If you define a certain task boring, it will be boring. Finding excitement when you attached a boring connotation to an activity is extremely hard. For me, excitation resides in finding higher purpose in everything that you do.”
