CCEUs: 1.0 Core Competency and 0.5 Resource Development
Flow is one of the most valuable psychological states we experience -- one that we all could use a little more of. Flow, as Steven Kotler defines it, is “doing your best + feeling your best.” But how do you “get better” at flow? What are the pre-conditions for flow? How do you design your environment and schedule to make flow more likely? How do you consistently tap into flow when you need to get something done? In this session, you’ll learn what conditions are necessary to create flow. You’ll learn the most common flow disrupters and flow triggers. You’ll also learn how to create “flow spaces,” where you regularly and consistently drop into flow. If procrastination is the scourge of modern life, getting better at flow might just be the answer.
