Flow is the psychological state when we are at our most creative and productive--made famous by psychological researcher Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi. In flow we get so caught up in the passion of what we are producing that we can lose track of time and what’s going on around us. An hour of creative writing goes by and we hardly notice it. Or we’re on the playing field with our team and time seems to slow down and we know just where the ball is going before it even gets there.
The work we produce in this state is often our best, and also our fastest. But for many of us, flow happens more by accident than on purpose. The good news is that the research points in some very helpful directions to help you get into creative, productive flow more predictably and to make the most of this time when you get it.
This video and the worksheet that goes with it can help you get more strategic about how to get into a flow state. And just as important, how to choose what to spend your time working on when you’re “in the zone.” The result is worth it—imagine if you could build a system for yourself to reliably produce your most valuable work outputs in a fraction of a normal working day!
