S is for... State of Flow


S is for... State of Flow

2019, the year of State of Flow. I guarantee it. Well something tells me at least that you will start to hear people banging on about it a bit more.

What is State of Flow?

It’s basically a mental state where you have got your shit together and you are bang on it. Like you could do anything and you feel great doing it.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi this is the guy credited with highlighting flow. But, let's be honest, others have been using the concept for years. He is just the guy to really present it to the masses.

Many of us would maybe know it as being in the zone, loving it or buzzing. Something like that.

I think the important thing to remember is that flow is probably coupled with ebb; ebb and flow. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that has read yesterday’s blog entry about binary opposites and everything having an opposite.

So all I know is, there will be good times and bad times WHATEVER direction it is you are going in. Don’t think you can avoid it. Embrace the idea of a state of flow and accept the fact that things take effort to get done. Control your state of flow.


Who doesn’t love a good quote?
