I wanted to share Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi with you. He is one of the first authors I encountered who researched the “in the moment joy of creating”. I found his book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 20 or more years ago. It peaked my interest way back then and since then I’ve listened to Csikszentmihalyi’s wonderful Ted talk as well. But, it’s that idea that when we get in the moment we know the next logical thing, we feel the creative sparks moving us forward and we make the perfect next move. We are in the glorious flow! Perhaps we are making music or we are doing something athletic or we are painting or drawing or writing or singing or dancing!
I hope you find yourself experiencing creative flow often! One way I know how to easily dive into flow is to set a little time aside (even 15 minutes) and simply move your hands!! See what happens!
All my best!
P.S. Here is a recent article featuring some of Csikszentmihalyi’s wisdom. Enjoy!
