Do this!

I have a task for you. It will take you however much time you're willing to spend on it. Here it is. After every small, mundane task you do, ask yourself why you just did that. You can be as detailed or as vague as you like. For example, I just scratched my ear because it itched, I just looked down at my keyboard because I was typing and I wanted to see what I was typing, I just looked up at the supply cabinet because I was trying to think of what to write next, I just answered the phone and said hello because it rang and that's what I've been told to do. Maybe this is a boring task, but it'll make you think a little about things you normally don't think about. Some of the things you do you might not know why you do. Maybe that would be interesting to think about. Now go try it and comment about how it goes!
