365 Grateful: 04.18.2014

365 - 04-18-2014

Ohhhh, Yellowstone. Such an awesome place. Yesterday, I felt like I was part of that frothing flow of water cascading down the mountain. Why? Because I was “in flow” — totally immersed in what I was doing with an energized focus — and enjoyment in the process. I’m grateful to know what that’s like.

Flow’s a positive psychology concept, courtesy of Mihály Csíkszentmihályi. It’s completely focused motivation that represents perhaps the ultimate experience in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning.

Yeah. Did I mention I was grateful?
