In my own words: What is flow?

I came across the concept of flow awhile back and it immediately resonated with me. It described perfectly that sense of complete immersion, focus, and motivation into a project that just commands your full attention and interest. Time stops and nothing else matters while you’re in that flow. All you care about is going with it and enjoying the ride.

Whether its researching a topic of interest, solving a puzzle, or figuring out how to do something new. Flow is that transcendent joy where you enjoy what you’re doing and “work” ceases to be work. It might not happen often, but when it hits, the creative juices are flowing and your productivity goes through the roof!

I’ve noticed that there are certain areas of interests that spark my flow and which will be the focus of this site. First and foremost is psychology. This is main reason I studied it in undergrad and then went to get my master’s in counseling. There’s something truly fascinating about the mind and studying why we do the things we do.

But my flow also kicks in when I get caught up with technology and learning how to use something new. Whether it be an app, a new website I just found out about, or an actual piece of hardware, I love technology. I also get engaged with politics, the media, film and television, business, etc. The list goes on and on. Stick around and you’ll see some of the things that grab my attention and get my flow going.
