The first answer that comes to mind is a type of process, a list of steps or instructions about how to do something by dividing it into small steps. Something like in a cooking book that explains the steps to follow to cook a dish.
This is the type of steps that we can find in websites such as www.ehow.com, www.wikihow.com or even in videos obtained from www.youtube.com or www.videojug.com when you look in the search engine "how to...".
So, on one side we can answer by telling the steps we follow to do something.
We can think about the attitude with which we do different type of things: We can do it... easily, quickly, slowly, cheaply, often, confidently, enjoying, relaxing, talking, quietly, noisily, simply, happily, singing, dancing, loving, hating, suffering, sharing, learning, observing, judging, frely, under pressure, in a hurry, etc.
We can do the same activity with the aim of enjoying it or pushing ourselves to do as much as possible, or trying to observe what happens while we do it, trying to observe how we feel while doing it. etc.
When thinking about thinking, about your thinking, How do you do it? There can be many techniques to help you to think, but the attitude can be more important than the method that is used. You can think with passion, with confidence on finding new solutions, with hope, enjoying it, with patience, practising other skills, etc.
There are routines that can be done in many different ways, physical activities that can be done with different attitudes. The same activity of moving some parts of the body can be done looking to do it faster, with more energy, relaxing, feeling the muscles, breathing deeply (same activity with different purpose and attitude).
When thinking about our work, about our life, about any activity... we can stop and think: How am I doing it? What am I feeling while I do it? How can I do it enjoying it more? How to do it more efficiently?
We can think about our daily routines and how much time we spend on different activities, and which activities we would like to spend more time (because we enjoy them more) or expend less time (because we don't enjoy them), or we can think how to enjoy them. This last paragraph reminds me a book I read about "Finding Flow" from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
