After I write down and verbalize my task (picking the cup), Should I keep my mind blank? The DVD says no thinking. I have a tendency to keep repeating the question to myself. I do this to try to keep my focus on the task. But is there a better way to maintain focus?

That would seem OK to me. I think the point is to not be consciously trying to guess the answer or intentionally moving your hand to "make" the tool go a certain direction.

What "no thinking" means is that you should avoid as much as you possibly can trying to puzzle out or guess which cup it might be. You should indeed keep your intended task in mind. More specifically, it can help to try to keep visualized in your "mind's eye" (so to speak!) the object that you are actually seeking. This will not only help you focus your intent, but can in fact aid in keeping other distracting mental content away.

Best,
Paul
