How To Get Into The Flow State by Steven Kotler Recommended Talk
Flow is defined as an optimal state of consciousness, a state where you feel your best and perform your best. More specifically, the term refers to those moments of rapt attention and total absorption, when you get so focused on the task at hand that everything else disappears. Action and awareness merge. Your sense of self vanishes. Your sense of time distorts (either, typically, speeds up; or, occasionally, slows down). And throughout, all aspects of performance, both mental and physical, go through the roof.
Flow is an optimal state of consciousness and an amplifier of creativity and to date 20 flow triggers have been identified.
Steven Kotler, author of The Rise of Superman, shares practical insights on how to trigger the peak performance state called “flow” more consistently in life and work.
