I'm reading and enjoying How to Cook your life, and trying to put into practice all the recommendations, ideas and wisdom in there.
And this morning I found this webpage with a simple a powerful idea: When you are doing some work or task too fast and sloppy, it is a good idea to imagine you are teaching how to do that task to someone else. That way you are going to slow down and be more mindful of what you are doing. I've just tried this afternoon in the kitchen while cooking, washing dishes and so on and it certainly helped.
Here's the link of the webpage http://lifehacker.com/5628699/act-li...id-sloppy-work
