34 CHALLENGESCHALLENGES SKILLS HIGH LOW HIGH ANXIETY BOREDOM FLOW

35 Goals are clear Feedback is immediate A balance between opportunity and capacity Concentration deepens The present is what matters most Control is no problem The sense of time is altered The loss of ego -Mihaly Csikzentmihalyi

36 “ Flow is a state of self forgetfulness, the opposite of rumination and worry… In this sense moments of flow are egoless. Paradoxically, people in flow exhibit a masterly control of what they are doing.. And although people perform at their peak while in flow, they are unconcerned with how they are doing, with thoughts of failure or success- the sheer pleasure of the act itself is what motivates them” -Daniel Goleman
