Practice-Sequencing

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What is practice-sequencing?”

“It means gaining clarity on and optimizing the order in which you perform a set of practices.

Let’s take an example. 

What do you want to do during every single break?”

“My MIP (Most Important Practice) [<link; medium read] is Presence. So definitely that.

I want to reflect on the previous time-block and to actively recall what I learned, to turn it into a learning cycle [<link; short read].

And I want to move, to do a quick movement snack [<link; short read].”

“Aren’t the last two also parts of the Presence practice?”

“I guess they are.”

“How do you want to initiate the Presence practice?”

“With a mindful breath. I want to

Slow down, breathe, and smile. (Thich Nhat Hanh)

It makes me smile every time I say it.

“So we have a sequence:

Mindful Breath
Mindful Learning Snack
Mindful Breath
Mindful Movement Snack

This is essentially an algorithm. In gaining clarity on it and constantly reminding yourself of it (by means of intention-setting), you ensure consistency.”
