When work makes you feel skillful and challenged, you’ll be happy, strong, creative, and satisfied. This is Flow.Just like an athlete who achieves great things when they are 'in the zone’, you can significantly boost your own performance by triggering the state of ‘Flow’. Flow is that state you’re in when you’re completely concentrated and absorbed in the use of your strengths and find yourself performing at your peak for a fixed period of time (anywhere from minutes to hours).

I help people trigger flow, in themselves and others.
