Do you often struggle to control your mind from flicking between different distracting thoughts… causing you to lose your focus on life’s bigger picture?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone with this, as we all suffer from periods where we just can’t get into the rhythm of things.

But how good does it feel when you’re in an effortless state of flow and you’ve got your groove on so-to-speak? For example, when you continuously have ideas bursting out of your head and life just seems to fall into place?

Or when you’re able to harness your focus at a drop of a hat?

But if these precious moments are few and far in between, you’re going to love today’s book, Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

“We have called this state the flow experience, because this is the term many of the people we interviewed had used in their descriptions of how it felt to be in top form: ‘It was like floating, I was carried on by the flow.’ It is the opposite of psychic entropy… and those who attain it develop a stronger, more confident self, because more of their psychic energy has been invested successfully in goals they themselves had chosen to pursue.” – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi from Flow


And here’s a few words from Brian on the book: “Flow is an incredible book that powerfully articulates the science behind how to control our consciousness to more consistently get ourselves into the optimal state of experience known as flow, and, as a result, enjoy our lives more.”
