Getting in the Flow : The Art of Mastering Flow States

“It is when we act freely, for the sake of the action itself rather than for ulterior motives, that we learn to become more than what we were. When we choose a goal and invest ourselves in it to the limits of concentration, whatever we do will be enjoyable. And once we have tasted this joy, we will redouble our efforts to taste it again. This is the way the self grows.”
~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

You know that feeling when time stops when you’re doing something and get completely immersed in it. It could be different for everyone, it could be gaming, writing or even riding a motorcycle.

When I was in my twenties riding my motorcycle used to transport me into another realm, there was no time except the now, with the amount of traffic in Bombay and getting to work on time you had to be completely focused. So much so that I would feel like I was one with the motorcycle. It felt like the motorcycle was an extension of my Body.

What is “Flow”?

The experience of getting completely immersed in what one is doing, according to psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is “Flow”. In his book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, he describes getting in the flow as a pleasure, delight, creativity and process where one is completely immersed in life.
