How to enter Autopilot Mode - Deepstash

How to enter Autopilot Mode

  1. Create a plan of action (e.g. a prioritized list of tasks)
  2. Remove your feelings
  3. Start on the first task

Step #1 helps you immensely if you’re tackling a task for the first time.

Step #2 is crucial. By “removing your feelings”, I really mean eliminating them—even if they’re positive, and especially if they’re negative. You can do this using any mindfulness practice that you’re comfortable with.
