The right mindset to start.
So the "concept" of flow seems logical, not too complicated and actually something you do not need a lot of guidance for to accomplish. Keep in mind that flow is "a mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity". However it does not seem many people are able to apply it. Why? Either they don't know about it or they know about it, but think it will come without any effort.
From what we have seen, read and applied so far you can do the following to set the basis for above:
At first you need to have a clear vision of how you want to FEEL over the course of your life (not neccessarily WHAT you want to become or do), then you must define the tasks that make you feel this way (be it at home or at work). We think it is a more profound way to approach, in the end it is all about a feeling and not about what you are doing, right?
The tasks that create flow are likely to achieve but must be challenging your mind at the same time. So pick these tasks wisely, do not just get caught in finding anything better than nothing.
