Because once you have mastered the techniques to find flow, you will be able to use the tools for the rest of your life.
So what exactly is a flow state?
When you are fully in flow, you are:
Or as Mihály Csíkszentmihályi put it in his book Finding Flow:
"An optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best.
Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake.
The ego falls away. Time flies."
Imagine being able to generate flow states at will.
That’s exactly what you are going to master - and make your own.
And then - imagine applying that kind of presence, brilliance and focus to an idea that has been waiting to come into the world until just the right time.
Well, with this toolkit, you can make this the right time. Right now.
Once you know how to create the conditions for flow to happen, you can adapt the tools for all your projects and to begin to cultivate a life where you simply have more moments of being utterly present, unexpectedly inspired and connected to your innate creativity, ultimately transforming work into something that feels more like play.
