#11 Rian Doris & Conor Murphy: Flow — Cultivating the optimal experience of life (part 1)
Flow dramatically increases every measure of performance you can imagine, as well as your subjective quality of life experience. It’s defined as an optimal state of consciousness. This will help you understand and increase your time in flow so you can get the most out of every aspect of your life.
Our goal in this conversation was to get your hands on the knobs and the dials and the levers of your own psychology. By the end, you’ll have:
a strong understanding the principles involved
know how to tweak and improve your experience on an ongoing basis
be able to apply these principles in a wide range of circumstances.
This is part one of a two-part conversation. You can find part two here.
