“By stretching skills, by reaching toward higher challenges, such person becomes an increasingly extraordinary individual”. -Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
It will be interesting to ponder over what are such Flow experiences that we encounter, what is it that gives us a Dopomine kick & puts us in a state of heightened attention! How do we increase our own challenges everyday, to reach a state of altering our state of consciousness. What could be those activities where our complete being is involved, our skills are utilized to the optimum and we are completely oblivious to time? To some it could be painting, to some it could be dancing, poetry, etc. To me it certainly is my sketchnote time! Identify for yourself and try indulging as often as you can. It’s a beautiful and addictive zone to be in!
Flow unites all aspects of life into a single unified propose. We experience flow when we are in a zone of self direction. Congruence with self is therefore critical to make work enjoyable, and fun, not expecting any outcome, but enjoying the sheer process of indulging in what you do. Work should enable us to follow from inside out, from our very being!
Find your purpose, find your flow!
