The Theory of Flow

After attending RISE Austin in March, and reflecting on how individuals decide what to do to contribute to society and make money - it comes down to flow!! Below is an exert from the Flow Theory - yes - whenever time flies by and you are doing something that is helping other folks in the world - keep doing it and don't stop!

Flow Theory- new way of thinking - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

notion of flow in creativity; people enter a flow state when they are fully absorbed in activity during which they lose their sense of time and have feelings of great satisfaction. Mr. Csikszentmihalyi describes flow as "being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost."
