The book Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, is one of my favorite books. I read it a long time ago and remember enjoying it very much. Recently, while visiting my local used bookstore, I found a paperback copy and I am re-reading it. It is full of insights into why we love the feeling of flow. It is something I have known for years but was never quite able to put into words. Now I get to experience the feeling while reading about it. If you haven't read it yet and you are curious about the psychology of optimal experiences... this is an incredibly inspiring book. There is also a TED Talk you can watch here: https://youtu.be/fXIeFJCqsPs
There are so many great insights in this book and since I'm a big nerd when it comes to art and the science of creativity, you will be delighted to know that more is coming soon!
