Book Review: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

I stumbled into the topic of “Flow” the other day while reading up on cravings and addiction.

I suddenly remembered a time when I was coding 10 hours a day, time flew, I was at ease, no doubt in my mind, I felt all-powerful, challenged — yet somehow up to the task, learning and improving like crazy. I felt perfectly fulfilled and happy.

While building a company I somehow lost that over the last decade.

I want my team and me to feel that again. To do great things and learn. So I made it my mission to rebuild my life and the company around Flow.

The term was invented by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (pronunciation: Mee-high Chick-sent-mee-high) in the 90ies after researching “flow” for years. So I started with his classic 1990 book.
