- Keep calm and be ok with stopping for some minutes.
- Do somethin simple that you know makes you feel better or more comfortable (ie, strech out, play some background music, eat a snack).
- In your mind, go a step back and try to get a general perspective of the actual situation. That is, the present moment and space and their relation of where it is "contained": Hour-> day-> week; Computer-> room-> house.
- Proceed with the "Ideas washing tunnel" technique. Something I made out wich I can explain better in another moment. Briefly, it helps to visualise and analyse the thoughts sticking in your head (chores, responsabilities, etc.)
That's the theory!
- The map is located slightly behind me, so it doesn't catch my attention when my mind is wandering around.
- The map has other implications more than being a "toy" that captures my attention, and it doesn't success in making me wanna play with it in a casual way.
- The instructions usually ask me to do too much and review all the posible blocks I have in that given moment. I have found that I don't usually finish the whole process.
- The "Ideas washing tunnel" method relies too much on my current state. I already knew that, this is why there are some steps before, but it looks that the previous steps doesn't help to get into the optimun state as expected.
At some point or when I find this topic again when wearing the problem solver hat I will improve this a little more.
