I’m reading “The rise of Superman”, an awesome book about “flow”. For those who do not know or understand the term. Flow is a state of mind in which we can achieve complicated and risky things. In this state we are highly focus on completing complicated targets and goals, without really thinking about it.
Extreme sports athletes enter the state when they do their death defying stunts. And when they don’t they die. They literally bet their lives on getting into the state.
I do not.. I want to. But I have not found the goal yet for which I would risk it all. It might be because I am too scatterbrained. But it just might be that I’m to scatterbrained because I am looking for that thing I want to risk it all for!
I’m hoping for the latter, because really I would love to find my passion for which I will risk it all and need flow to complete it.
Thank you Steven Littler for your awesome book.
